The early dynastic texts from Lagash present numerous philological and historical problems. In this work, the author considers some of the philological and historical problems raised by the onomastic element LUM-ma, which is variously attested as a component of canal and place-names; as a theophoric element in personal names; as personal name in its own right; and, according to many scholars, as one of the names of the third king of the Lagash dynasty, E'annatum—no doubt the most prominent of the pre-Sargonic rulers of Lagash and one of the most important figures in the history of Babylonia in the third millenium B.C.E.

Abstract

The early dynastic texts from Lagash present numerous philological and historical problems. In this work, the author considers some of the philological and historical problems raised by the onomastic element LUM-ma, which is variously attested as a component of canal and place-names; as a theophoric element in personal names; as personal name in its own right; and, according to many scholars, as one of the names of the third king of the Lagash dynasty, E'annatum—no doubt the most prominent of the pre-Sargonic rulers of Lagash and one of the most important figures in the history of Babylonia in the third millenium B.C.E.
