1As noted in MSL 14 p. 288 note ad 1, the readings makkás and tàl are assigned to normal in Ea 58 and 68, but to AŠ-t. in the present commentary.

2Quotation from Enūma eliš VII 62.

3Ea II 206 and 207.

4As noted in MSL 14 p. 288 note ad 9ff, it is difficult to tell whether ll. 9-11 were indented or not, i.e., whether they contained new entries. However, MSL 14 p. 288 suggests that one should expect here Ea II 217.

5Ea II 217.

630 1/2 could also be read as .BAR.

7Ea II 211.

8Ea II 210/216.

9Ea II 209.

10Ea II 211.

11Compare K.11702 o 4′ (CCP 3.4.u14): zi-ir za-a-ru ka-pa-lu, “zīr (stems from) zâru, (which means) “to roll up.”
