[23 In PBS V 106 IV 24–27 [= Diri V] (dup. BM 37240) É.KI.SÌ.GA (“house of offerings for the dead”) with the pronunciation [ (..)]ùr-ri is equated with qú-bu-rum and šu-ut-ta-tum; and with the pronunciation [(..)]x-lal with la-aḫ-tum and ḫa-áš-tum. Apart from laḫtum, which only occurs in lists, the other three Akk. terms have well known mortuary associations. The restoration ka-am-ṣ[i-ri]š is based on the term ganzir, ganṣir. To the passages given in CAD add: ana ga-an-ṣir (Reisner, SBH p. 146 V 31); ú-šá-aṣ-bit-su-nu-tú ga-an-ṣir (BM 76498 obv. 8); and the name of an underworld god dka-am-muš (CT 24 36 66).]
