      > I am trying to track down information about a Sumerian text. The text was published in 1917 in Stephen Langdon's Sumerian Liturgical Texts (Univ. of Pennsylvania Museum Publications of the Babylonian Section 10.2) as text #4562 "An Epical Poem on the Origin of Sumerian Civilization," but I can't find if it has been translated more recently. It is extremely fragmentary and has hardly any complete sentences (but a lot of toponyms). My interest is in obv., column 2, line 5: "la.ìa.ma3 engur.ra ðe.bi" (broken before and after), but I'd really just like to know of a modern edition of the text, if anyone has any ideas.
