Robert D. Biggs joined the staff of the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary (CAD) in 1963 after receiving his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University. In June 2004, he celebrated his 70th birthday and retired from the University of Chicago as Professor of Assyriology in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations; his service to the CAD, however, will continue until the final volume appears. To acknowledge and honor his forty-one years of extraordinary service to the Assyrian Dictionary as collaborator, associate editor, and editorial board member, contributions from some of his former and current CAD colleagues are assembled into the volume. It is fitting to revive this series, as the first volume, From the Workshop of the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary: Studies Presented to A. Leo Oppenheim, appeared forty years ago, in June 1964, and Biggs's contribution there was his first published article.The articles in this volume range over the several areas to which Biggs has contributed: Akkadian and Sumerian, texts and archaeology, literature and medicine, philology and lexicography. The common thread throughout this volume is that every contributor has enjoyed the privilege of discussing her or his scholarly work with our esteemed colleague Robert D. Biggs in the fertile field of the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary. Contents1. Masculine or Feminine? The Case of Conflicting Gender Determinatives for Middle Babylonian Personal Names. John A.
