§0. Acknowledgements
Firstly, I must express my gratitude to Helen Armstrong, the collections manager, for her kindness and help during my stays in September 2009 and 2012 at the Oriental Museum, University of Durham, and for giving me all the necessary information about the history of the collection. Secondly, I am very grateful to Christopher B.F. Walker, who informed me in June 2008 for the first time about the Oriental Museum collection and, suggesting that I should study it, put me in touch with Helen Armstrong. My sojourns at the Oriental Museum and study of the material were possible thanks to the project “Las inscripciones reales de la III Dinastía de Ur (c. 2100-2000 a.C.): un estudio histórico y filológico” (FFI2009-11111), funded by the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación (Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation).

 

§1. Introduction
§1.1. The Oriental Museum (the former Gulbenkian Museum of Oriental Art), University of Durham, houses an extensive collection (ca. 2500 items) of objects collected by the Dukes of Northumberland, most of which come from Egypt. However, an important group of seals (110), miscellaneous small objects (35), and different texts, principally on tablets, cones, and bricks (82), come from the Near East, primarily from Mesopotamia. Some of these objects from the Near East are forgeries or have fake inscriptions (see e.g. Lambert 1979: 28-31). The seals and small objects were published by Lambert (1979: 1-38). The major part of this collection, originating from Egypt, was made by the Fourth Duke of Northumberland (1792-1865), who as Lord Prudhoe, travelled extensively in the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, and Sudan, visiting all the principal archaeological sites. However, most of the collection was acquired not during these trips but at auctions and through dealers in the UK, especially in 1835 and 1836, when some objects from the collections of Henry Salt and James Burton were obtained. The collection was installed at Alnwick Castle before 1847. Some of the objects from the collection were published in the works of Sir J. G. Wilkinson and Richard Lepsius. Samuel Birch, Keeper of the Egyptian and Oriental Antiquities in the British Museum, catalogued the collection, which was published in 1880 for private distribution at the expense of the Sixth Duke. The part of the collection relating to the Near East was made by another member of the family, Lord Warkworth, who travelled extensively in the Near East between 1895 and 1899.

 

§1.2. The entire collection remained at Alnwick Castle until 1939, when it was loaned to the British Museum for safety at the beginning of the Second World War. It remained there until the end of the conflict, when it was restored to Alnwick Castle where it was never unpacked on its return. The collection was sold in December 1949 by Hugh Algernon Percy, 10th Duke of Northumberland (1914-1988). At the sale of the collection, the British Museum bought six pieces for £700 (three Egyptian: N 517, N 1030 and N 2164, and three “Asiatic antiquities”: a plaque with the name Enanatum, probably BM 130828, N 2267, a stone tablet concerning the building of a house or temple in the city of Uruk, and N 2406, an agate eye inscribed with the name of Hammurapi). They also retained the Prudhoe lions that had been given to the museum long before the loan of the collection in 1939. Durham University bought the remainder of the collection for £14,000. The government Treasury awarded a grant to the University of £7,000, and Mr H. N. Spalding gave £6,000 towards the acquisition. Durham received the purchased collection on 25 August 1950. Upon its arrival at Durham, before the present Oriental Museum was built, the collection was housed in a room at Hatfield College.

 

§1.3. This paper aims to publish the thirty-nine objects of the 3rd millennium, of which thirty-eight have inscriptions. Concerning their acquisition by the museum, two phases can be discerned:

 

1. Most of the objects (25), including the royal inscriptions on clay cones (§§2.5-21), the stone weights (§§2.1-2, §2.4), a stone macehead (§2.3) and four Ur III tablets from Lagaš (§§2.22-25), were acquired, as stated above, in 1950 as part of the Oriental Collection of the Dukes of Northumberland.
2. The rest of the objects were acquired in or after 1952:
2.1. In 1952 the bulla (§2.35), that was a small part of the objects presented to the museum by Sir Charles Leonard Woolley from his excavations at Ur, was acquired.
2.2. The nine Ur III tablets from Drehem, Umma and probably Lagaš (§§2.26-34) were acquired in 1981. These nine tablets were donated by Professor G. W. Anderson on 16 October 1981, according to a letter addressed to John Ruffle, the Keeper of the Gulbenkian Museum of Oriental Art at the time, stating that these tablets came to G. W. Anderson from the sister of C. L. Bedale, teacher of Old Testament at the former Wesleyan Methodist College at Didsbury in Manchester, who died at the end of the First World War. According to a letter addressed to G. W. Anderson dated on 3 February 1953, T. Fish stated that the tablets had come to the University of Manchester, that he had assigned numbers to them, and asked in the letter for permission to publish them in the April issue of MCS, but, for unknown reasons, this did not happen.
2.3. In 1986, a tablet and its envelope, previously published by Edmond Sollberger (§2.36), were acquired from the sale and dispersion of the Amherst collection.
2.4. In 2010 a brick (§2.37) and a tablet from Drehem (§2.38) were acquired as a transfer from Durham Learning Resources, a school library service run by Durham County Council.

In the following, text artifacts are listed according to their respective museum numbers, and catalogued with the categories, ‘object’; ‘accession number’ (this is a former number usually written on the artifacts’ surfaces); ‘dimensions’ (defaulted to height × width × thickness, in cm); ‘date’ (period, where included n the text, year/month/day); ‘provenience’; ‘seal information,’ if any; and ‘comments.’

§2.21. DUROM N 2456
Object: Clay nail
Accession no.: North. 2456
Dimensions: 7.75 (preserved length); [...] (circular head lost); 3.30 (width of the preserved upper part of the shaft)
Date: II Dynasty of Lagash (Gudea)
Provenience: Girsu
Comments: The lost text of column i could be either RIME 3/1, 135-136 Gudea 37 or RIME 3/1, 138-139 Gudea 41. However, the division of the text into two columns, which does not occur in the clay nails with the text Gudea 41 (cp. §2.12 and §2.20), makes the former possibility more likely.

§2.23. DUROM N 2458
Object: Ruled clay tablet
Accession no.: North. 2458
Dimensions: 19.50 × 21.40 × 4.40
Date: Ur III (AS 4?/[?])
Provenience: Girsu
Comments: The text is of particular paleographic interest, particularly because of its cursive script. Thus it shows a tendency to omit the first vertical wedge of some signs: geme2(MUNUS.KUR). There are exceptions; e.g., in obv. i 36, ii 14, geme2 appears only in the final section of the sum in its usual form (KWU793), sometimes the sign NIN (e.g. rev. i 9), še3 (e.g. obv. ii 17), making še3 sometimes look like the sign ŠU, and TUG2 (e.g. obv. ii 24). There are archaic writings such as the difference between the signs BAD (death annotation before PN, e.g., obv. iii 36, and resuming verbal form ˹ba˺-uš2(BAD)-me, rev. vii 17) and TIL (verbal form ba-uš2, obv. vi 32, vii 19) and gešgigir2 (LAGAB×GE23, a variant of LAGAB×U = TUL2) (obv. i 29, iv 23) instead of gešgigir(LAGAB×TIL; LAGAB×IDIM = GIGIR) for “chariot.” This shows that the coalescence of BAD and TIL and the change from gešgigir2 to gešgigir was a process over time and did not suddenly occur at the beginning of the Ur III Period, as has been stated (see, e.g., Steinkeller 1981: 20 2., 26 4); see also gešgigir in the following Old Akkadian passages, gešgigir(LAGAB×TIL)-ra in TMH 5, 104 rev. i 4 (-/-; Nippur), lu2-gešgigir(LAGAB×IDIM) in CUSAS 13, 101 3 (-/-; Adab), OSP 1, 33 ii 4' ([?]/[?]; Nippur) and gešgigir2(TUL2) si2-LUM-ma in the Ur III text BIN 5, 107 5 (ŠS 3/-). The annotation ḪAR (perhaps to be read ar3), preserved before 11 PN, known to me only in this text, refers, according to the sum in section rev. vii 12-14, to people who are not at the disposal of the textiles operations, because they have been sent to the mill.

§2.36. DUROM 1986.11.1 & 1986.11.2
Object: Ruled clay tablet with envelope
Dimensions: 4.36 × 3.32 × 1.80 (tablet); 5.35 × 4.20 × 2.79 (envelope)
Date: Ur III (ŠS 7/-)
Provenience: Girsu
Sealed (envelope): Seal measurements, legend: 10.5 mm × 20.2 mm; length of legend with scene: 40.4 mm. Fighting scene of two humans and an animal. Sealing prior to inscription concentrated on the free spaces of the obverse, reverse and edges. To my knowledge this seal is attested only here.
Comments: This tablet and its envelope belonged to the Lord Amherst of Hackney Collection (known as the Amherst Collection) that E. Sollberger published in 1978 as MVN 5, 188. At that time, the collection was already dispersed, having been auctioned at Sotheby’s in 1921 (Sollberger 1978: 16 8). As the copy in MVN 5, 188, demonstrates, prior the auction the envelope was still unopened. During the sale, the envelope was opened, the tablet extracted and the envelope glued together.
