Introduction

This small fragment preserves meager remains of a previously unidentified commentary on Aa II/4. This originally two- or three-column tablet belong to the British Museum’s “Babylon Collection”, and shares its consignment number (80-11-12) with two other Aa commentaries: BM 38137 (CCP 6.1.16.A.b, on Aa III/1) and BM 38519 (CCP 6.1.u4, on Aa VI). The section preserved is devoted to explaining the Akkadian readings of the sign when read as . The most interesting feature of the fragment is that it lists the rare word ūṭu, “half cubit” (under the archaizing writing ú-ṭú-um) as one of these readings.
