1ḫepi could also be taken as a paratextual note.

2The line contains a quotation from the eršemma uru ašera (which also existed as the first section of a balaĝ of the same title). In that text the line appears, with small variations, as ll. 20-23 (see the editions in CLAM pp. 66-67 and Gabbay HES 2 [2015] p. 171).

3The present line probably contains the Akkadian translation of the Sumerian line. The parallels BM 42658 and LKU 10 translate the line as kīma ... ṣa-ab-tu₄ ina maš-ta-ki-šá ba-ka-a ul i?-kal?-la? (see Gabbay HES 2 [2015] p. 306). Note also AMA₅ = maštaku.

4See line r 8′.

5The line probably contains a quotation from a literary text.

6Compare Ea IV 111 and 114 (MSL 14 p. 359): ku-ú ḪA = nu-ú-nu, za-aḫ ḪA.A = na-bu-tu.

7Compare Ea IV 124 (MSL 14 p. 360): se-e SUM su-nu = mašālu. On ṭubbû, see Aa II/7 iv 6a′ (MSL 14 p. 298). Note the very relevant entry from Diri: sa-ah ḪA.A = ṭú-ub-bu-ú (Diri VI B 5 = MSL 15 p. 188). The restoration of the last verb is based on Diri VI B 8.

8The rare verb sanāpu is attested in two rituals (see CAD S 132a) and in Šumma Ālu VI 80 and VII 15.

9kalab urṣi, “badger” (?), is attested in Ḫarra XIV 86. It appears in Izbu V 91, XVII 61, and in the list of prodigies CT 29 48 l. 12. Compare also Šumma Ālu VI 82 and 84 (UR.A and UR.GI₇).
