Beschreibung des Verlags
The two hymns of Agusaya, known as Agusaya A and B, are among the most difficult literary texts in Old Babylonian. A copy of Agugaya A was published by H. Zimmern as VS 10, 214. Photos of the tablet were published by Zimmern (1916, plates 1-2) and Marzahn and Schauerte (2008: 345 [rev. v-viii]). The editio princeps of Zimmern (1916: 10-28) was followed by several editions by B. Groneberg (1971: 43-66; 1981: 107-25; 1997: 75-93). Numerous translations and studies have also appeared, among them the translations of Hecker (1989: 731-38) and Foster (2005: 96-106) The tablet, whose provenance is unknown, is kept under the siglum VAT 5946 in the Vorderasiatisches Museum in Berlin. Agugaya B was edited by Scheil (1918: 174-82 [with photol]), followed by the editions of Groneberg (1971: 53-57, 67-71; 1981: 126-34; 1997: 84-93). Translations of the text were presented by, among others, Hecker (1989: 738-40) and Foster (2005: 103-6). Unfortunately, no copy of the text exists, and the text itself, again of unknown provenance, seems to have been lost.
