Sumerian First Love Poem Tablet Small


This inscription, dated to the 18th century BC and belonging to the Old Babylonian Period, is described as the oldest known love poem in the world. According to Sumerian belief, it was a sacred duty for the king to marry a priestess once a year instead of INANNA, the goddess of fertility and love, in order to ensure the fertility of the soil and the fertility of the womb. This poem was probably written by a bride chosen for king Shusin, to be sung at the New Year’s Eve celebration, and was sung at banquets and feasts, accompanied by music, song, and dance.

According to the common view in the scientific world, Sumerian is an isolated language that has no connection with any living language. The Sumerians wrote cuneiform on clay tablets. Therefore, we are lucky that many of these clay tablets have survived to the present day. Because other civilizations found in ancient times wrote their writings on parchment or papyrus, and most of them have not survived.
