1zu-ú-ru stands for zumru. The same explanation (SU = zumru, SU = ramānu) can be found in DT 35 l. 7 (CCP 3.8.2.B), SU : zu-mur : SU : ra-ḫe--<ma-nu>.

2salāḫu = narāṭu is atteted in the commentary SpTU 1 72 r 3 (CCP 3.6.3.E). Compare Lanu B 21-22 (CT 19 11 r ii 24′-25′): TU.UL = nêʾu, ramû.

3In Sagig 3 6 the line is ¶ UGU-šú KÚMem u SAG.KI-MIN-šú KÚM la-aḫ-ḫa-ḫa-šá, which is apparently interpreted by the commentator as “if his skull is hot and his forehead is warm (around) around its laḫḫāḫu.”

4Quotation from unknown source.

5A text entitled Ginutaqqû is mentioned in the Exorcist’s Manual l. 3, but nothing is known of it.

6Lines 7′-8′ contain a literary quotation from a bilingual source, but it does not seem to be elsewhere attested (see CAD U/W 37).

7Compare STT 403 o 18 (CCP 4.1.1.D)(comm. SA.GIG 1-3): bir-ti Á-MIN-šú : bi-rit MAŠ.SÌLA-MEŠ-šú (= naglabī) [courtesy of Eric Smidtchen].
