Introduction

This tablet represents the latest known exemplar of the commentary on Isru, the first chapter of the series Barûtu. Several duplicates of this long commentary, termed here CCP 3.4.1.A, are known, the longest of which is K.3978+ (CCP 3.4.1.A.a), a tablet of originally around 250 lines. Specifically, lines 2-8 of the present tablet are duplicated by K.6540+ o 3-8 and K.3978+ i 3, 7-10.

The most interesting aspect of this tablet is its colophon, which records the name of its owner, Nabû-balāssu-iqbi (the theonym is written cryptographically with the sign dingir plus the sign ud repeated nine times). This scribe, a member of the Egibatila family who lived in Arsacid Babylon, was the owner of eight other commentary tablets. Dating to around the end of the second century BC, they represent the latest known group of commentaries. The present tablet is in fact the only commentary by this scribe for which much older copies are known, which testifies to the vitality of the "stream of tradition" still in this late period. Besides the present tablet, the only known manuscript of this commentary from outside of Kuyunjik is LKU 133 (CCP 3.4.1.A.h).
