Chapter Summary

F.A.M. Wiggermann in his article "An unrecognized synonym of Sumerian sukkal 'Vizier' " (W.1), attempted to show that the sign SAL.HUB2 was reading lagar, archaic title emegir (EG) corresponding to the emesal (ES) the bar/li-bi-ir. P. Michalowski, reacting to this article "The shekel and the vizier" (M.1), added some new examples and suggested reading rather sukkalx/sugalx. Semantic or graphic specializations complex reflects functional or cultic reality whose own complexity escapes out. Lexical tradition seems to have frozen not only local peculiarities but also graphs and Sumerian-Akkadian matches very specific. In iconography the lagar is probably associated with the plate Enheduana28. Wiggermann suggests that the figure accompanying in the vase of Uruk and other monuments of the late fourth mill is none other than the lagar. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: F.A.M. Wiggermann; graphic specializations; lexical tradition; semantic specializations
