The tablet came into possession of the Assyriologist Jean-Vincent Scheil in 1911, having bought it from a private collection in France. The tablet when purchased was reported to have been unearthed from Kish. Scheil translated the tablet in 1911, followed by another translation in 1934. The tablet dates to the early 2nd millennium BC.
