Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... or did not reign at all. In fact between Sargani-sarri and Dudu and Su-gar-kib the last 2 kings of Agade, we want 5 kings to make good the total of 12. It is too early to give a definite answer to that question which, after all, is only a secondary one. The last contribution of the new fragments concerns the domination of the Guti.
