The discussions of Babylonian religion, literature, and scholarship focus on the usefulness and relevance of these modern concepts for categorizing the ancient text. The volume presents the first critical edition of qNanse and the Birds, q as well as editions of the hymn Nanse B and all third millennium and Old Babylonian lexical lists of birds.
