Example text

15 (Ur), and also from Ur are mentions of gold and silver statues of dSîn-iq¯ısˇam (UET 5 406:2 [RiSi 33], 404:7 [RiSi 32]). Sattukkum-offerings were presented to the four statues of dSîn-iq¯ısˇam standing in the Ninurta temple in Nippur (Sigrist 1984: 149). C. The Cult According to the description of the daily cycle of rites in this tablet, we can infer the definition of the cultic day. Because each day in the text begins and concludes with the term á-u4-te-na “evening” (lit. “time when the day cools off ”) in conjunction with two dates (16 and 17, for example), as noticed by Kingsbury (1963: 18), it is certain that the day began in the evening of one day and ended at the evening of the next day.

21 In Ur III, this rite is related to that of the holiday of má-an-na, “the Barque of Heaven” (or: An, for this reading of “barque of An”, see Cohen 1993: 215 ff. ). It was the second most important rite associated with Nanaya observed in Uruk. The offerings are usually listed to the má-an-na, to Nanaya or her temple and to or for the èˇs-˜gi6-zal. 23 This holiday was mostly observed by women, predominantly of the royal family but not necessarily so. Pettum The term pettum (p¯entu) “charcoal, coals” (i 35, ii 47, and passim) is not known as a designation of a specific cultic performance.

1: Larsa “Ritual” Tablet text provide some minimal information on the cultic functions that these women performed—functions inside the temple for which they needed to be purified and anointed. In our text they are specially anointed on the feast-day of Inanna (v 7) and also may have been anointed on the feast-day of Nanaya (vi 30) but the corresponding section is not preserved. As in Kiˇs, this group of women were probably organized under the supervision of an ugula-overseer. meˇs, occurs in a list of individuals receiving ˘ have restored ugula; his namesake is the ugulaprobably garments.
