Appetitive: Cuniform

One of my early fascinations with classics other than Hellenic studies was with Cuniform. In ninth grade my Ancient History class read The Epic of Gilgamesh, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My first Greek tutor actually took classes in Cuniform, which sounded incredible.
The Epic of Gilgamesh (Penguin Classics)
According to AWOL, Harvard, in connection with some other groups, have put up a digitized library of Cuniform texts and artifacts. It's quite impressive. Maybe I'll learn Cuniform at some point...
