Introduction

This small fragment contains remains of a commentary on an astrological text. It is divided in two sections by a ruling after line 4′. The first section probably elaborates on astronomical omens by interpreting them as the movement of planets. The second section is concerned with the horns of the moon, which suggests that the base text might have been Enūma Anu Enlil V. Several apodoses feature in the commentary (ll. 3′, 4′, 6′, and 8′).
