Bibliography

Finkel, 1986aI. L. Finkel, On the Lugale Commentaries, Revue d'Assyriologie, vol. 80, pp. 190-191, 1986.
[On the Lugale commentaries. - Since the publication of the Kuyunjik Late Assyrian library catalogue fragments K 13684+ and K 11922 by W. G. Lambert in Kramer AV 313-318, the existence of ṣâtu and mukallimlu commentaries to Lugaie has been known. Furthermore, the last-named scholar has suggested that the Late Babylonian tablet BM 51213+, joined and copied by him for inclusion in J. J. A. Van Dijk's recent edition as source ba, is a commentary tablet with excerpted lines (with the explanations still unrecovered), although this suggestion was not adopted by the editor of the volume, where it is classed as an "extrait". A further unnoticed mention of the second type of commentary occurs in the Assur Late Assyrian short catalogue Kôcher BAM 310, where a gentle emendation permits one to read rev. 5-7 as: mu-kal-lim-tu LUGAL.˹É! UD!˺ ME.˹LÁM.BI˺ NIR.GÁL.]
: 190-191
