Has anyone here read the 'Complaint Tablet to Ea-nasir?

I think its just an absolutely wonderful (and somewhat hilarious) example of how people back then thought the exact same way as we do now.

Researching a bit about Mesopotamia culture you can find some practices that we today link to the Islam, that are in fact cultural traditions coming from that far.
