1The restoration of immeru at the end is based on Ea I 193: si-i LU immerum. If the MU from kisimmu was also glossed, the gloss would have been written over the now lost right edge of the tablet.

2The sign after the aleph cannot be T[U] (pace MSL 14 p. 506), nor TA, TE, TI, TÚ. The reading I is possible, but there are other possibilities.

3The restoration at the end is based on Aa III/2 145 (MSL 14 p. 330) ṣarāpu ša lalê, "to be loud, said of exhuberance."

4The final sign is clearly UM, but the restoration is tentative. The sign before UM is ZU, as copied by Goetze, and not SU, as read in MSL 14 p. 506.

5The reading of the third word as upqu, as in MSL 14 p. 506, is ill-suited in the present context.

6The sign after šá is perhaps an archaizing form of qar.

7The sign ÍL is written in an archaizing fashion.

8Pace Dunham RA 80 (1986) p. 56 fn. 108, the last preserved sign is clearly DA.

9Goetze's copy of the last sign is accurate. The sign ŠIM, as read in MSL 14 p. 507 (ri[g?-mu]), is unlikely. The restoration adopted here is very tentative.

10The first phrase of the third column is taken here provisionally to mean "ingot of gold" (On lišānu + Metal Name as "ingot" see CAD L 215a). Cf. CCP 3.7.2.C (ṣâtu-commentary on Alamdimmû) r 2: EME šá ṣi-pa-ru. According to U. Gabbay, it could also be interpreted as “language of crawling,” taking lišānu ša as a technical term (for which there are parallels). The last preserved sign is not U, as copied by Goetze and read in MSL 14 p. 507, but rather a ŠE-looking sign.

11The sign after DAG is probably not a colon.

12The meaning of BIR-MEŠ is unknown: see Civil MSL 14 (1979) p. 147-148.

13Taqīš-Gula's title has been restored after YBC 11380. The last preserved sign is clearly LÚ.

14The end has been restored after PTS 1.
