Introduction

This small fragment from Uruk contains remains of a commentary on the third chapter of the medical series of diagnoses and prognoses, Sagig. Only the last few entries of the commentary are preserved; they seem to deal mainly with philological issues. Thus, the verb mašādu, “to massage,” is explained by means of the nearly synonymous verb mašāʾu (l. 10′). Other entries appear to provide non-philological specifications for certain entries: thus, the diagnosis and prognosis “he stole from a ship, the god of the quay will seize him” (l. 3′, referring to Sagig 3 96) is explained as “he stole something from a ship [...]” (l. 4′).

A photograph of the tablet was kindly provided by Hermann Hunger. The transliteration below makes use of an ATF transliteration originally prepared by Philippe Clancier for the GKAB project, which has been extensively revised. Thanks are expressed to Philippe Clancier and Eleanor Robson.
