E-iginimpa'e was ruler of Adab, circa 2500 BCE.

E-iginimpa'e (Sumerian: , e2-igi-nim-pa-e3) was a Sumerian ruler (ensi) of the Mesopotamian city of Adab in the mid-3rd millennium BCE, probably circa 2400 BCE.[2] He succeeded another ensi known as Mugsi.[3][4]

He is known from several inscriptions, most of them located in the Oriental Institute Museum, Chicago, with one tablet in the State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg.[5][6] He was a contemporary of Lugal-zage-si as several land transactions are recorded between the two.[2]

One of his tablets reads, dedicated to goddess Digirmah or Ensimah (, equivalent of Martu) reads:[7]

? ?

d-mah/ e2-igi-nim-pa-e3/ GAR-ensi/ adab{ki}/ e2-mah mu-na-du/ ur2-be2 ki-sze3/ temen ba-si

"For the goddess Digirmah, E-iginimpa'e, ensi-GAR of Adab, built the E-Mah for her, and buried foundation deposits below its base"

-- Tablet of E-iginimpa'e in the State Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg.[8][9]

E-iginimpa'e was "ensi-GAR", the highest civil office in Adab.[10]
