Cuneiform Tablet, Sumeria, Third Dynasty of Ur, Delivery Receipt

Clay; 38mm/18.8gm      Ca. 2112-2004 BC

Con/ A very sharp example with inscriptions on both sides

Provenance & Attribution/ Dr. David MacDonald, University of Illinois, acquired in the early 1970's

Seller's Note/ Always scarce, such cuneiform tablets from ancient Sumeria, Mesopotamia, are now becoming more difficult to find, especially with such irrefutable provenance. Translated by the resident cuneiformist at the University of Minnesota in the late 1960s, this is a receipt for a delivery of beer!
