Chapter Summary

Much of the neo-Sumerian literature in Old Babylonian copies concerns itself with the royal house of Ur and with such of their predecessors as Gudea of Lagash, Naram-Sin of Akkad, his high-priestess Enheduanna, and perhaps even Eannatum of Lagash. And other internal indices abundantly support an early date for the origin of these and other hymnic compositions, which some hitherto unpublished copies from Ur and Nippur will eventually confirm. The number of texts now identified as catalogues or inventories of Sumerian literary works cited by their incipits continues to grow. The tradition of generic classification was firmly established by Middle Babylonian and Middle Assyrian times. In this chapter, the author looks into an Old Babylonian catalogue in CBS 14077, published in 1934 by Chiera as STVC.

Keywords: Old Babylonian Har-ra; Sumerian literary catalogue; Sumerian literature
