Sauren and M. Van De Mieroop). Cornell University Studies in Assyriology and Sumerology, Volume 16 (CDL Press, ).

    Six of the tablets date from the Ur III period ( BCE), are written in Sumerian, and most likely come from the Umma and Drehem archives. Identifications, translations, and dates for these six tablets were determined in by Changyu Liu of the University of Heidelberg. The epic had gained popularity in much of the Middle East by the middle of the second millennium B.C.E. It was apparently the Middle Babylonian version that was the basis for most of the Ninevite recension, the c. line epic in twelve tablets discovered in the Assyrian Library of Ashurbanipal at Nineveh dating from the seventh century B.C.E.".

    Tablets 1 and 2 are from the Puzriš-Dagan (mod. Drehem) provenience and dated to the Ur III (ca. BC) period. Tablets 5 and 4 are from the Umma (mod. Tell Jokha) provenience and dated to the Ur III (ca. BC) period. The provenience of Tablet 5 is uncertain and is dated to the Old Babylonian (ca. BC) period. The Third Dynasty of Ur, also called the Neo-Sumerian Empire, refers to a 22nd to 21st century BC (middle chronology) Sumerian ruling dynasty based in the city of Ur and a short-lived territorial-political state which some historians consider to have been a nascent empire.. The Third Dynasty of Ur is commonly abbreviated as Ur III by historians studying the period.
