About this title


This volume is the first publication of all 499 cuneiform tablets in the Asiatic Collection of the Oriental Institute Museum that come from the ancient administrative center of Puzrish-Dagan (modern Drehem) and date to the reign of Shulgi, the second ruler of the Ur III Dynasty (ca. 2094-2047 b.c.). One hundred twenty administrative documents from the business archive of Queen Shulgi-simtum are the highlight of this innovative text edition. The volume features a comprehensive catalogue, transliterations of all cuneiform texts, complete indices and detailed analytical charts for all documents, as well as philological notes and illustrations for selected tablets.
