This catalogue is derived from BPO2. The Sumerian transliteration is in all-caps, and then the Akkadian is in italics. The English translation of the name is in quotes, followed by the modern star or constellation to which it refers. I have not included alternate spellings for any of the constellation names, as this would lead to a maze of circular definitions. Also, this catalogue is alphabetized by the Sumerian. In the event that the Sumerian name is not known, the constellation is still included and alphabetized by its Akkadian name, but only in this event.

Famous as the birthplace of Abraham and the site of the best preserved ziggurat in the Middle East, Ur in the past 20 years has been damaged by war and conflict and today is under threat from neglect, exposure and inappropriate restoration. Today the most visible remains of the ancient city are the ziggurat, a palace, a Royal Cemetery and several temples and houses. The goals of the GHF project – in partnership with the Iraq Ministry of Culture, State Board of Antiquities and Heritage (SBAH) and the Dhiqar Antiquities Office – are initially to survey and document the site and its remains, produce a new topographic map, define the site boundaries and produce a Master Conservation Plan for the site in preparation for conservation of the most seriously endangered structures.
Ur ( Sumerian : Urim ; [ 1 ] Sumerian Cuneiform : 𒋀𒀕𒆠 URIM 2 KI or 𒋀𒀊𒆠 URIM 5 KI ; [ 2 ] Akkadian : Uru ; [ 3 ] Arabic : أور ) was an important Sumerian city-state in ancient Mesopotamia located at the site of modern Tell el-Muqayyar ( Arabic : تل المقير ) in Iraq 's Dhi Qar Governorate . [ 4 ] Once a coastal city near the mouth of the Euphrates on the Persian Gulf , Ur is now well inland, south of the Euphrates on its right bank, 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) from Nasiriyah . [ 5 ] The city dates from the Ubaid period circa 3800 BC, and is recorded in written history as a City State from the 26th century BC, its first recorded king being Mesh-Ane-pada . The city's patron deity was Nanna (in Akkadian Sin ), the Sumerian and Akkadian ( Assyrian - Babylonian ) moon god , and the name of the city is in origin derived from the god's name, URIM 2 KI being the classical Sumerian spelling of LAK -32.UNUG KI , literally "the abode (UNUG) of Nanna (LAK-32)".
