Ud (cuneiform)

The cuneiformud sign, also ut, and with numerous other syllabic uses, as well as multiple sumerogramic uses is a common sign for the mid 14th-century BC Amarna letters and the Epic of Gilgamesh. The sign is constructed upon the single vertical stroke , with various positionings of two wedge-strokes at the left, sometimes approximately centered, or often inscribed upwards to the left, the second wedge-stroke (or 'angled line-stroke'), occasionally inscribed/ligatured upon the first. The wedge-strokes can have any size, are often smaller than the vertical, but as an example, Amarna letter EA 256, can be almost as large as the vertical.

:* lah

:* pir

:* tam

:* tú

:* ud

:* ut

:* uṭ Sumerograms

:* BABBAR--"silver"

:* UD--"daily", "day", (2nd "daily"-(no. 2))
