2The lineage name can be either Šumati or Iddin-Amurru, but the latter name is much rarer in this corpus.

3The copy shows the final signs of this line as {m}lu-[...]. Based on the seal impressions, however, this lineage name should be read as Ḫunzu. Cf. Wallenfels (1994): no. 0320, no. 0596, and no. 0686.
