Seventy-two cuneiform Sumerian literary texts from the Yale Babylonian Collection are featured in this volume of the Yale Oriental Series

The long-awaited twenty-second volume in the Yale Oriental Series provides reproductions of over one-hundred plates drawn from the Yale Babylonian Collection, one of the world’s largest repositories of cuneiform inscriptions. An essential resource for Assyriologists, Sumerologists, and scholars of the ancient Near East, it features an introduction by William W. Hallo and seventy-two Sumerian literary texts and inscriptions that include hymns, prayers, incantations, model legal documents, and royal correspondence, shedding light on Mesopotamian culture as transmitted through ancient Sumerian documentation.
