Introduction

This small tablet is known to us a list of commentary fragments kindly made available by Christopher B. F. Walker. It contains meager remains of a commentary. The preserved portion appears to speculate on the name of Nabû, or else on the etymology of the verb nabû, "to name."

It is uncertain on which text the present tablet comments. Not however that other tablets from the 1881-7-6 consignment deal mostly with the astrological divinatory series Enūma Anu Enlil.
