Introduction

This small and badly broken fragment contains meager remains of a commentary on the beginning of the second tablet of the lexical series Ea. The two preserved entries deal with the possible readings of the sign ; some of the equations are well attested elsewhere (see e.g. the commentary on obv 7′).

The edition below follows closely Civil’s edition in MSL 14.1

1Compare 11N-T3 ll. 30, 35, and 36 (CCP 4.2.A.a): du-u : lil-li-du.

2Compare Ḫg A II 23ff. (MSL 7 p. 68): GI.ŠE. = ḫab-bur-ru = lub-šu ša GI-MEŠ.

3The reading adopted in MSL 14 p. 267, TUR.TUR-tu₄, does not fit the traces.

4As noted by Civil, MSL 14 p. 268, ka-a-šú is also attested in LB 852 o 15′ (CCP 6.1.9.B).
