Catalogue of Cuneiform Tablets in Birmingham City Museum 2

This second volume of cuneiform tablets in Birmingham City Museum presents some 300 neo-Sumerian economic texts, mainly from Umma, formerly in the Wellcome Collection. All the tablets, which include a few from Lagash, are economic in nature but deal with a variety of commodities: animals, workers, silver, baskets and reeds, oils, fish, beer, barley and rations. The texts are preceded by a register of texts, and indexes of personal names, divine names, geographical terms, and toponyms.
