Excerpt from Symbols of Prehistoric Mesopotamia

Concerned primarily with the period before there were written texts, the book is not written for the philologist. In the two concluding chapters, however, I have turned to the texts of later periods to ensure that the religious ideas which seem to me to appear in the Prehistoric Period are not more highly developed than the situation in later periods warrants. While I have made my own independent translation of a few texts, usually I have relied on the best published translations I have been able to find. In some cases I have been exceedingly fortunate to have the assistance of Professor Ferris J. Stephens of Yale. The knowledge of Sumerian and Akkadian, however, has not yet progressed to a point where scholars easily agree in the reading of texts, and the translations I present, like all translations I can find, serve simply for working convenience.
