GEORGE The antediluvian king list is an Old Babylonian text, composed in Sumerian, that purports to document the reigns of successive kings of remote antiquity, from the time when the gods first transmitted to mankind the institution of kingship until the interruption of human histo- ry by the great Flood. The list exists in several versions. Books shelved as sumerian: The Epic of Gilgamesh by Anonymous, Sumerian Mythology by Samuel Noah Kramer, Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gil.

The sign list contains at least three items: -a number from Borger 's book `Assyrische-babylonische Zeichenliste' --the cuneiform sign in New Assyrian orthography.

Babylonian astronomy collated earlier observations and divinations into sets of Babylonian star catalogues, during and after the Kassite rule over star catalogues, written in cuneiform script, contained lists of constellations, individual stars, and planets. The constellations were probably collected from various other sources. The earliest catalogue, Three Stars Each, mentions. These ancient sign names are derived from one common reading of that sign. Thus the sign 𒈪 (MI) in the example above is called gikkigu (derived from the reading giggi "black"), and the sign 𒂂 (DUGUD) is called dugudu. Although many sign lists omit sign names, there are still an estimated 2, such names have been preserved.
