This is a Replica of the original Tablet From Nineveh, northern Iraq, Neo-Assyrian, 7th century BC which is one of the most famous cuneiform tablets from Mesopotamia.
The best known of the Ancient Cuneiform Tablets was the Epic of Gilgamesh, a legendary ruler of Uruk, and his search for immortality. The Epic of Gilgamesh is a huge work, the longest piece of literature in Akkadian (the language of Babylonia and Assyria). It was known across the ancient Near East, with versions also found at Hattusas (capital of the Hittites), Emar in Syria and Megiddo in the Levant.
The Eleventh Tablet of the Epic, Which this is an Ancient Biblical Replica of, describes the meeting of Gilgamesh with Utnapishtim. Like Noah in the Hebrew Bible, Utnapishtim had been forewarned of a plan by the gods to send a Great Flood. He built a Boat and loaded it with all his precious possessions, his kith and kin, domesticated and wild animals and skilled craftsmen of every kind. Utnapishtim survived the Flood for six days while mankind was destroyed, before landing on a mountain called Nimush. He released a Dove and a swallow but they did not find dry land to rest on, and returned. Finally a Raven that he released did not return, showing that the Waters must have receded.
