Working from a hand-written copy of the inscription made several decades ago (the original tablet is now lost), two cuneiform experts, Nathan Wasserman of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Michael Streck of the Altorientalisches Institut at Universität Leipzig, painstakingly translated the fragmented and often puzzling ancient riddles that give an honest, humorous and sometimes grim assessment of Babylonian society.
"You have to think about the riddle like the 'Lord of the Rings'; it is metaphor," Wasserman said.

The riddles were recently translated from Akkadian - a Semitic language whose two main dialects are Babylonian and Assyrian - by Nathan Wasserman, a professor in the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Michael Streck, a professor at the Altorientalisches Institut at Universität Leipzig.
Headed by professors Wasserman and Streck, the project is a collaboration between the Institute of Archaeology of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Altorientalisches Institut of the University of Leipzig, and is funded by the German-Israeli Foundation for Scientific Research and Development (G.I.F.).
As for why modern society is interested in ancient puzzles, Prof. Wasserman says: "Riddles, like proverbs or fables, provide us an intimate insight into ancient people's minds, beyond the monolithic world-view of royal ideology and official religious beliefs.
