1The sign name for 2(aš) in Ea II, 125 is de-el min-na-bi. There are no sign names attested for higher combinations of AŠ, but we do have sign names for the multiples of U. 7(u) in Ea II, 179 is given as [MIN(gi-gur)] i-mi-na-ku.

2Unfortunately, the sign after MI is damaged. Therefore U could also be equated here with mihiltu, for which compare Ea II, 150 and its subcolumn 3: šaGI.Emi-hi-il-tu.

3The addition of the sign DIŠ to U does not appear in the base text: Aa II/4, 150 only contain U in subcolumn 2, which is represented by the sign name MIN(gi-gu-ru-u) in subcolumn 3. The equivalent is given there as 10 bu-urGAN₂.

4Note that CCP 6.1.13.B.a reads for the KUR's reading /šahan/ in line 7': * { +ša₂-ha-an}KUR : {d}{ +ŠU-ma}KUR. The same can be gleaned from CCP 6.1.13.C. It seems that in our text only {d}KUR is used as "equivalent". Ea II, 193–198 has ŠU in each entry. For this and the subsequent divine names, each written with the sign KUR see also the god-list An : Anum VI, 244-249.

5The sign name dili tenû also occurs in the fragmentary commentary CCP 6.1.13.C r,10': AŠtdi-li-te-nu-u, and in CCP 6.1.13.B.a r,9': šu-šur ZIB di-li-te-en-[nu-u?]. In the subsequent lines the parts of this sign name will be referred to as MIN MIN.
