This volume is the first publication of all 499 cuneiform tablets in the Asiatic Collection of the Oriental Institute Museum that come from the ancient administrative center of Puzrish-Dagan (modern Drehem) and date to the reign of Shulgi, the second ruler of the Ur III Dynasty (ca. 2094-2047 b.c.). One hundred twenty administrative documents from the business archive of Queen Shulgi-simtum are the highlight of this innovative text edition. The volume features a comprehensive catalogue, transliterations of all cuneiform texts, complete indices and detailed analytical charts for all documents, as well as philological notes and illustrations for selected tablets.
