Abstract [en]

The article presents a preliminary survey of third millennium Sumerian and Akkadian inscriptions before the Neo-Sumerian period on objects dedicated to gods. Manufacture, object types and social standing of persons offering such objects are examined, and the structure and contents of the inscriptions are analyzed. Comparisons to royal inscriptional materials are drawn, offering new results and new avenues for research.
