(29) At that time (to) the great wall of New City which (was erected on) a mound facing the [open country], which (stretches) from the great wall of Inner City by all of [New City] as far as the River (Tigris), (and) which Puzur-Aššur (III), my forefather, a king who preceded me, had previously built to that wall Aššur-bēl-nišēšu, (who was) also my forefather, applied a façade. It again became dilapidated and (the wall) together with its gates and towers Erība-Adad (I), vice-regent of the god Aššur, (who was) also my forefather, a king who preceded me, applied a facing and façade in different places. He rebuilt the ruined wall from top to bottom. That wall had become dilapidated and was in ruin. I, Adad-nā[rārī], vice-regent of the god [Aššur], restored and refaced the dilapidated and weakened (wall). I rebuilt the ruined (wall) from top to bottom. I made (it) the thickness of fourteen bricks (which were made) in my large brick mold and deposited my monumental inscriptions. I deposited my forefathers' monumental inscriptions with mine.
