    Amat-Mamu in Wikipedia Amat-Mamu, fl. ca. 1750 B.C., Sippar in ancient Babylonia, was a scribe whose existence is known from the cuniform tablets on which she wrote. Amat-Mamu was a Naditu priestess and temple scribe in Sippar, in ancient Babylonia. We know she lived in the gagum, a walled cloister precinct inhabited exclusively by women. Her name is known through Naditu documents that show Amat-Mamu was one of eight scribes within Sippar's gagum. Her career spanned the reigns of three kings, Hammurabi (17921750 BC), Samsu-iluna (17491712 BC), and Abi-eshuh (17111684 BC).
