Nippur, Foundation tablet of Rim-Sin
|Nippur, Foundation tablet of Rim-Sin|
For the god Enki, who determines the great destinies ... Rim-Sin, prince who reverences Nippur ... has built for him the temple Egeshrushudu ("House of Perfect Wisdom"), his beloved residence. He enlarged its eshusiga from what it had been previously. He raised its head there and caused it to grow up there like a mountain.
