Professor Farouk Al-Rawi (left) talks with Dr. Osama Shukir Muhammed Amin (author; right) about the newly discovered Tablet II of the Epic of Gilgamesh. The interview was conducted at the Sulaymaniyah Museum on April 7, 2019 CE. Professor Al-Rawi holds the tablet in his left hand while his right hand holds a magnifying lens. The cuneiform text has been transliterated by Professor Farouk Al-Rawi and an article will be published by him soon. The cuneiform inscription indicates that the tablet belongs to the Old-Babylonian version of the Epic. Circa 1800 BCE. Not on display. Exclusive image, never-before-seen. It is in the Sulaymaniyah Museum, Iraqi Kurdistan. Acquisition number T-7544.
