Introduction

This small fragment in Neo-Assyrian script, edited by L. Verderame as source c of EAE 5, preserves the beginnings of several omens derived from the appearance of the moon’s horns, as well as the beginnings of a few commentarial explanations. The explanations are indented, which is the typical format of mukallimtu-commentaries from Nineveh.
