Introduction

This small fragment preserves meager remains of a text written in tabular format. At least two columns and three sub-columns are preserved. Some of the entries are well attested in the lexical tradition, especially in the list Ḫarra = ḫubullu. It is likely that the fragment is part of an unusual lexical list, rather than a commentary.1

  • 1. Note that the tablet BM 46627 (81-8-30,93) = CCP 6.3.25, which belongs to the same consignment as the present tablet, is an unusual manuscript of Nabnītu with commentarial additions.
