(This file includes all manuscripts from Nippur which it has not been possible to assign to the proverb collections numbered in modern editions. The manuscripts are presented in decreasing order of size. Some of the proverbs are duplicated in numbered collections. A further two fragments from Nippur have been published, N 3500 (Alster 1997 pl. 112) and N 3936 (Alster 1997 pl. 113), but it has not been possible to extract any meaningful text from the photos)
