1The restoration at the beginning of the line is based on the first line of the main commentary on tablet XIV, cf. Leichty 1970

2For the Erimḫuš quote see Maekawa ASJ 18 (1996) p. 105, Sjöberg Fs Jacobsen (1975) p. 164 and dcclt/Q000203 and notes ad loc.

3The interpretation of this line differs from that of De Zorzi and Jursa NABU 2011/33; see Kraus NABU 2015/55. The second part of the line renders the archaizing writing ku-us-sà-at with the regular first millennium spelling ku-us-sa-at.

4The equation of mārūtu = ṣeḫēru is otherwise unattested.

5Compare [ka-a]-°a-nu = mukīl rēš in BM 37655 o 6' [EJ].

6lu could also be read DIB, but the equation DIB = peḫû is unattested.

7The interpretation of ll. 23-25 is based on CAD S 224a.

8The traces do not seem to allow a reading [... UNU]G.ki-ú, and [ú-r]u-ku-ú vel. sim. seems too far-fetched
