OLDEST
I’m starting a series where I am investigating our -est things in the collection.  Oldest, largest, smallest, most ——. 
This 4,060-year-old clay (“cuneiform”) tablet from Umma, modern Djoka, is a receipt signed by the temple scribe and is the oldest item in Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Iowa.
Are there any “-est” or “most —-” items you want to know?
