A Gutian inscription dated c. 2130 BCE: "Lugalannatum prince of Umma ... built the E.GIDRU [Sceptre] Temple at Umma, buried his foundation deposit [and] regulated the orders. At that time, Si'um was king of Gutium." AO 4783, Louvre Museum.[1]

Lugalannatum (๐’ˆ—๐’€ญ๐’ˆพ๐’บ, lu-gal-an-na-tum) was a ruler ("patesi") of the city-state of Umma, circa 2130 BCE.[1]

Lugalannatum is known from a deposit tablet, now in the Louvre Museum, in which he mentions the rule of Si'um, king of the Gutians.[3][1] The tablet was first published in 1911, and first revealed the existence of a Gutian dynasty of Sumer.[2][4] The tablet is written in the Akkadian language following the influence of the former Akkadian Empire, and uses Sumerian cuneiform characters for their phonetical value.[1] It reads:

Lugal-an-na-tum/ pa-te-si/ GIS UH KI-ge/ GIS UH Kl/ ba-ba-a/ 30 + 5 mu/ sal-la-ba/ รช pa GIS UH Kl/ sal-sal/ temen-bi/ ki-a ni-si-si/ me-bi sag-ba/ si-ba-ni-sa/ ud Ba-si-รป-um/ lugal Gu-ti-um kam

Lugalannatum, patesi of Umma, (as) Umma for 35 years abounded in liberalities, รŠ PA, the rich temple of Umma, its foundations he established, he ensured rites inside, and set up rules, at the time of Ba-siรปm, king of Gutium.

โ€” Tablet of Lugalannatum[2]

The name of the Temple, previously thought to be "รŠ PA Temple", is now understood as being "Scepter Temple", and read E.GIDRU.[1]

The text shows the allegiance of Lugalannatum, as simple Governor of Umma, towards the Gutian king of Sumer.[5]

There is also an inscription by Lugalannatum, dedicated to the life of Urgigir.[6]
