    : na-sa-a-ḫu

1The reading of the first part of the line is that of CAD P 142a, in CAD P 38a the second wrod is read as ip-ta-na-làḫ!.

2The explanandum may be a corruption of an apodosis particularly common in Sagig, ana ik-rib -bít KA-šú TIN, "for a vow that he promised he will get well" (see Borger JCS 18 (1964) p. 54a and Scurlock & Andersen, Diagnoses in Assyrian and Babylonian Medicine (2005), p. 255 §11.44, see also CCP 4.1.13.B l. 15). i-nam-din here may be a corruption of DIN in that prognosis.

3CAD Ḫ 55b proposes reading ta-mit as ta-ziz, an otherwise unattested word for "share."

4The interpretation adopted here follows CAD Z 76b.

5In the medical corpus, rabbiš is only attested in TDP 124 iii 27 (šumma rab-biš || rap-diš išassi, "if he cries out ('My stomach, my stomach') softly || variant: rapidly").

6The equation may be attested in Erimḫuš V 163-164 (MSL 17 p. 74): ŠUšu-du-ul.DUL₄ = katāmu, ŠU.NÍG.TUR.<<RU>>..BI = rab-bu-um. However, it would also be possible to take the first word as šu-dul, "wide," in Akkadian (see CAD Š/3 193b).

7The first equation appears in Diri I 264-265 (MSL 15 p. 54).
