1The previously assumption that the missing part of the line contained a reference to a Palace (Grayson, RIMA 1 p. 109; Schroeder, KAH 2 p. 9; Ebeling, IAK p. 42 n. 5; Luckenbill, ARAB 1 §§ 58-59) is to reject after the publication in P.A. Miglus, "Festungswerke von Assur im 2. Jahrtausend v. Chr.", in N.P. Heessel and S.M. Maul, Assur Forschungen (2010), of Puzur-Aššur Text no. 6 (IM 57822), that clearly reports the ruler new building of the walls and the gates of the New City.
