I crossed the Euphrates in flood. The kings of the extensive [land Ḫatti] who, in the time of Šamšī-Adad (V), my father, had become strong and withheld their [tribute] by the command of Aššur, Marduk, Adad, Ištar, the gods who support me, (my) awesome radiance overwhelmed them and they submitted to me. Tribute (and) tax[...] they brought to Assyria (and) I received (it). I commanded [my troops to march to Damascus]. I [confined] Mari in Damascus [... He brought to me] 100 talents of gold (and) 1,000 talents of silver as tribute. [I received it and took it to Assyria].
