Susa funerary tablet no.4, MDP 18: no. 253, line 1, trans. Tavernier 2013: 476.

There are, however, a handful of studies targeting specific subtopics or specific burials. The fourth millennium Susa I mudbrick massif funéraire platform on the Susa Acropole with its high quality painted pottery and associated skeletal material has been discussed by Hole (1989), Pollock (1989; 1999: 196–217; 2007: 211–12) and Álvarez-Mon (2018). The sizeable Middle Elamite funerary complexes at Haft Tappeh (Negahban 1991: 20–23) and Chogha Zanbil (Ghirshman 1968a: 59–74), and a small corpus of funerary texts written slightly earlier, in the mid-second millennium, have also inspired substantial scholarly discussion. Carter (2011) has recently studied these texts together with burials from Susa, Chogha Zanbil and Haft Tappeh to argue for the existence of a complex, multi-stage Elamite funerary rite, while Behzad Mofidi-Nasrabadi (2012a) has presented an interesting theoretical proposal for the conception and use of space in the Haft Tappeh and Chogha Zanbil tomb structures.
