Abstract The practice of adoption is attested in various periods and areas of the Ancient Near East. This phenomenon is expressed in the documentary evidence by the use of concrete formulae. The author proposes the identification of a modified formula of adoption in a document from Nuzi and another one from Ekalte. Moreover, a brief survey on the special adoptions and ther formulae from the Late Bronze Age is provided.
