The twenty-three Ur III cuneiform texts presented in this article are housed in
the collections of the Detroit Institute of Arts. This article publishes
thirteen Neo-Sumerian tablets from Puzriš-Dagan which primarily deal with
animals, and a further ten texts from Umma, including five messenger texts. The
aim of the article is to offer an edition and an updated catalogue of these
texts, with a special focus on the Neo-Sumerian administration.
