Ur, Ur, temple of the great gods, similarly (?). They call me the Daughter of Ur, the Queen of Ur, the daughter of princely Sin, she who goes around and enters every house, holy one who holds the ordinances; she takes away the young man in his prime, she removes the young girl from her bedchamber - still I am Nanȃ.
