During excavations at Dur-Kurigalzu (cAqar-Quf) in the 1940s the Iraqi team recovered several fragments of an inscribed diorite statue of King Kurigalzu. The inscription is by far the longest Kassite period Sumerian text, and it is therefore our prime example of what Kassite Sumerian looks like. The present article provides a new edition and translation of the text, focusing on its usage of rare Sumerian words and expressions that are known from the lexical tradition.1
