We have endeavoured to illustrate all texts of A Sumerian Chrestomathy with high resolution images as far as they were available (see menu on the left). Hopefully these images will help showcase the variety of materials on which such inscriptions could be written. The abbreviations follow those in A Sumerian Chrestomathy unless otherwise specified.

All images come from publications that are no longer under copyright or are reproduced with the permission of their respective copyright holders.

If the objects were catalogued with images in online resources such as the British Museum collection database, the Louvre collection database, or CDLI, they were linked directly. We have not linked to objects with existing entries, for example in CDLI, which contain no photographs.

To download the images please right-click and “save target as”. Please do not hotlink the images instead link to the webpage.
