The article proposes a reassessment of the professional designation of an individual found in a Hellenistic tablet from Uruk, now held in the collection of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. This reassessment is achieved through the collation of the tablet, which enables the identification of previously overlooked prosopographical connections with other individuals mentioned in a broader dossier documenting the activities of Uruk fishermen. Additionally, it supports a reconsideration (corroborated by the collation of another part of the tablet) of the property’s location within the city. The article concludes by highlighting the potential of studying the network of Uruk professionals to gain a better understanding of their economic and social dimensions, as well as their role in the daily life of the city and its temple

Abstract

The article proposes a reassessment of the professional designation of an individual found in a Hellenistic tablet from Uruk, now held in the collection of the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. This reassessment is achieved through the collation of the tablet, which enables the identification of previously overlooked prosopographical connections with other individuals mentioned in a broader dossier documenting the activities of Uruk fishermen. Additionally, it supports a reconsideration (corroborated by the collation of another part of the tablet) of the property’s location within the city. The article concludes by highlighting the potential of studying the network of Uruk professionals to gain a better understanding of their economic and social dimensions, as well as their role in the daily life of the city and its temple
