The Columbia University tablet collection has been known for over a century but only a handful of tablets has ever been published. The tablets relate directly to the extensive archives from Drehem and Umma and add a significant body of new data to these well-known archives. The publication is particularly useful to those interested in the history and culture of late, third-millennium Mesopotamia.
