What’s the oldest item in Special Collections? You’re looking at one of them.
This is a composite image that shows all sides and edges of a tablet we refer to as MULC 3 (for lack of a better name).  It dates from around 2100-2000 BCE.
This is an administrative tablet - which basically means that it’s a receipt!  This one details a transfer of livestock, including goats, sheep and cows, received by “Ilībani, dog herder.”  How amazing is it that we know the name of this shepherd who lived 4,000 years ago?
For a translation and transcription, take a look at the tablet’s page in UCLA’s Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative.
