Dr. Frans Wiggermann is the esteemed contributor of long and probing entries in the Reallexikon der Assyriologie und Vorderasiatischen Archäologie, invited by its editor D.O. Edzard, ranging from 'Mischwesen' (1994) to 'Siebengötter' (2010); see p. 12 f. in his Festschrift AOAT 441 (2017). The last article that he submitted was that on the god Sumuqan. At that time, the Reallexikon was urged to accelerate its pace in order to keep to the deadline. As a consequence, the lengths of articles were severely limited and 'Sumuqan' in Band 13, Lieferung 3/4 (2012), was much shorter than the original manuscript. Here, the manuscript is published as it was. It follows the format and the (terse) style of the Reallexikon.
