The 217 previously unpublished cuneiform texts presented here, found in small collections throughout the world, date from the late third to the late first millennia BCE and include inscriptions, letters, administrative documents, and literary works in Akkadian and Sumerian.

The late Albrecht Goetze (1897–1971) was William M. Laffan Professor of Assyriology and Babylonian Literature at Yale University, the chair now held by Benjamin R. Foster, who also serves as Curator of the Yale Babylonian Collection.
