The Epic of Gilgamesh & seven other Bonus Works
The Introduction, the Commentary to the two tablets, and the Appendix, are by Professor Jastrow, and
for these he assumes the sole responsibility. The text of the Yale tablet is by Professor Clay. The
transliteration and the translation of the two tablets represent the joint work of the two authors. In the
transliteration of the two tablets, C. E. Keiser’s “System of Accentuation for Sumero-Akkadian signs”
(Yale Oriental Researches—VOL. IX, Appendix, New Haven, 1919) has been followed.
