Large animal tribute center by the name of the Office of Puzri(?)-Dagan, which is now the Drehem site in Iraq, was built by the king (?)ulgi of Ur III dynasty at his 38th year’s dominance. The reason for establishing this animal center was that the Ur III dynasty royal family, court officials, the governors and nobles of the cities needed an office to manage their animal sacrifices, which were frequently offered to the deities in Nippur, Uruk and Ur. Simultaneously the palace and the officials of the royal court as well as the soldiers also needed the massive domestic animals as foods. The receiving and withdrawals of the large amount of animals required the special accounting office.é-Puzri(?)-Dagan, which was near to the religious center of Nippur and Tummal, therefore was elected as the place of the Royal Animal Center. The Office of Puzri(?)-Dagan was the animal managing center in ancient Mesopotamia and studying its documents will be the most important task for understanding the palace economy of Ur III Dynasty.The work in this paper is to reconstruct the archives of Lú-di(?)ir-ra I, an official who managed the wild animals in the tribute center. There are 362 texts of his archives in Puzri(?)-Dagan. Firstly, we reconstructed his archives of wild animals in chronological order, and then translated them into English and Chinese. In these texts, we have found the seal of Lú-di(?)ir-ra I, a bodyguard, son of Arad-hura.Through analyzing the job duties of Lú-di(?)ir-ra I, we can sure that he is an official of the tribute center, who managed the wild animals. Lú-di(?)ir-ra I’s work time is from (?)ulgi 39 to (?)u-Sin 2 v/11, sum 13 years. His dominating work duties is to receive live wild animals from managers of the tribute center, to pass on butchered wild animals to officials who took charge butchered animals, to withdraw live wild animals to Nippur for gods and goddesses, to dinner hall for the royal family and the nobles and to normal kitchen for messengers and soldiers.
