Supreme political power in Mesopotamia was vested in kings for as far back as the written records go, but the titles used to identify the office of kingship often varied from one city to another and from one period to the next.

These titles, traced backward to their origins and forward to their applications in more recent historical times, can tell us much about the political structure of Mesopotamian civilization... It is the object of the present thesis to fill this gap for the period starting with the first written records and ending with the end of the Old Babylonian period
