1Compare Šumma Izbu XVIII 94': LUGAL u DUMU-MEŠ-šú in--bi-tu₄.

2The last equation of the line was hitherto unattested: it is probably an ad hoc creation to explain a difficult use of ina.

3The gist of this entry escapes us.

4Alternatively, it would be possible to read : ME-šú instead of pi-šú, but in this tablet the MEs look different. lem: X; X

5The last equation is also attested in BM 38137 l. 8 (MSL 14 329 = CCP 6.1.16.A.b).

6The interpretation of this line remains uncertain, it may be a quotation from an unknown text.

7The rare word sugû, "famine," is attested in four Neo-Babylonian and Neo-Assyrian royal inscriptions (CAD S 344-345). Outside of them, only one occurrence of the word is booked in the dictionaries: CT 39 22 4, a manuscript of Šumma Ālu LXI.

8The equation is quoted from Ḫḫ XV 53.

9It is uncertain how the last two words should be parsed.

10The apodosis is attested in Enūma Anu Enlil: BM 35045+ r 11' and 13' (BPO 4 pp. 40-43). The protasis of BM 35045+ r 11' includes the logogram IGI (¶ [MUL SAG.ME].GAR ana IGI MUL ṣal-bat-a-nu DU).

11The line contains a vertical quotation from Erimḫuš II 202-203.
