Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

The earliest record of the Sumerian creation myth and deluge myth is found on a single fragmentary tablet excavated in Nippur, sometimes called the Eridu Genesis. It is written in the Sumerian language and datable by its script to the 18th century BC (First Dynasty of Babylon, where the language of writing and administration was still Sumerian). The tablet was published in 1914 by Arno Poebel.
