Overview of Early Dynastic and Early Sargonic Tablets from Adab & Umma

Tablet images in color are created from JPG photographs taken of tablets before conservation and cleaning and are relatively low resolution. Eventually these will be replaced with higher resolution images. Black and White images are of tablets after conservation and cleaning and are enhanced through the use of ammonium chloride misting. They were created from initial TIF files and are of relatively higher resolution.

The tablets from Addab are published in Early Dynastic and Early Sargonic Tablets from Adab in the Cornell University Collections (CUSAS 11) by G. Visicato and A. Westenholz.

The tablets from Umma are published in Early Dynastic mu-iti Cereal Texts in the Cornell University Cuneiform Collections (CUSAS 14) by S. F. Monaco.
