Legends of the Kings of Akkade
The TextseBook - 1997
The most impressive legacy of the Dynasty of Akkade (ca. 2310-2160 B.C.E.) was the widespread, popular legends of its kings. Dr. Westenholz offers an annotated edition of all the known legends of the Akkadian kings, with transliteration, translation, and commentary. Of particular interest to biblical scholars is the inclusion of “The Birth Legend of Sargon,” which is often compared to Moses in Exodus.
