Early Dynastic Period IIIb (c. 2500-2330 B.C.E.)

Zabala was a city-state in Sumer (now the site of the Dhi Qar governorate in Iraq). The city’s goddess was Inanna, the Sumerian fertility goddess.  This document outlines the distribution of fields that belonged to the temple of Inanna in Zabala. It is divided into nine columns.
