Before the Muses: An Anthology of Akkadian Literature

This lists enumerates The Archaic Period materials as described in Before the Muses: An Anthology of Akkadian Literature, 3rd. ed. (CDL Press, 2005). It should be noted, however, that the materials listed here do not correspond to Old Akkadian, viz. Sargonic, literature, but rather, simply, to literary texts written in Akkadian prior to the Old Babylonian period. This list therefore includes materials from the late Early Dynastic period (ED IIIb), the Old Akkadian or Sargonic period as well as Old Assyrian materials.
