Elamite marks person on nouns!

Recently I was reading about Elamite in the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages and learnt that Elamite marks person on (animate) nouns! So, for example, 'king' is sunki-, and 'I, the king' is sunkik, with the first person suffix -k.

I think person marking on nouns is really neat.
