Introduction

This small fragment preserves remains of a commentary on the 14th pirsu of the series Aa. The section deals with the signs an and nab. The tablet is very similar to CCP 6.1.11.B, another fragment of a commentary on Aa (11th pirsu).

The signs commented upon are represented with archaizing sign forms.
