Introduction

This small, non-descript fragment of the right hand side of a tablet preserves six fragmentary lines of a commentary on an extispicy text. One of them features the technical expression šumma... ana pānīka, “if ... is before you”; additionally, the explanation mentions a textual witness (šību).
