Balanced account of the shepherds


Umma, Ur III, Amar-Sin (reigned 2046-2038 B.C.E.)

This tablet is a ten-column ledger.  The other five columns continue around the other side, and are written as though the tablet was a cylinder: in other words, column six is right next to column five, but on the other side.
