This volume contains the transliterations, translations, and commentary on 50 tablets that are datable to the latter half of the third millennium.They come from the excavations which the British Museum and the University Museum of Philadelphia undertook during the season of 1929-30. Our transliterations are based on the photographs of the tablets, the most significant of which are published in an appendix to this volume.Despite the general growth of interest in Pre-Sargonic and Sargonic texts among Assyriologists during the last decade or so, no group of pre-Ur III documents has been more neglected than these texts.The chief purpose of this book is to disseminate as widely as possible this material. The commentary attempts to compensate for the small number of texts.
