The guard who molested gentlemen … a letter ana awīlē, from the Ur-Utu archive

Caroline Janssen UGent (2012) The ancient near East : a life! Festschrift Karel Van Lerberghe. In Orientalia Lovaniensia Analecta 220. p.281-294
abstract
The Ur-Utu archive contains a number of letters whose addressee is not Ur-Utu, or not Ur-Utu alone. One of these, about the misbehaviour of a guard, is written to a group of gentlemen whose identity is not disclosed. The letter reports that the accused has been found guilty by the gal.ukkin.na and the shu.i; now it is time to decide how to deal with his case. It is argued that the people addressed are notables from the neighbourhood, who know him well, and exercise social control; that Ur-Utu is among them, and that he may be identified as the perpetrator's uncle.
