Ur Nammu was the founder of the 3rd Sumerian dynasty and instigated a renaissance in art, building projects and the introduction of a legal code that still echoes into the modern age. All of this took place in southern Mesopotamia between 2047 & 2030 B.C.E
The inscription on this tablet reads – ‘Ur Nammu, the mighty hero, king of Ur, Hashammer the governer of Ishkun-Sin his servant’.
