Introduction

This small fragment, which was drawn to our attention by N. Veldhuis, contains remains of a commentary in tabular format. It is written in Babylonian script, and its contents suggest that its base text is of medical nature (see e.g. lines o 3, r 3′ and r 5′).1 However, since the contents are rather meager, and since no other tabular commentary on a medical text has been found in Kuyunjik, this seems rather unlikely. The fragment may well belong to a commentary on a different divinatory text.

The text is divided in several sections by means of rulings. It features one or two chains of explanations (lines r 6′ and perhaps also r 8′), and it also may contain a periphrastic interpretation of a word (line r 4′, if correctly interpreted).

  • 1. The fragment is classified as a “med. comm.” e.g. in CAD N 116a and Ṭ 164a.
