The text is very similar to no. 135 [http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/riao/Q004589/], save for the omission of "king of the universe" in line 1 and the fact that in line two the scribe has mistakenly written AŠ (Aššur) rather than INANNA (Ištar).

FOur bricks found in the Aššur temple at Ashur (Eḫursagkurkurra) bear this badly preserved text of difficult interpretation, which clearly mentions the Kalkal Gate of the temple (where one of the exemplars was found). The text is similar [/riao/Q004592.4/] to a passage from a text of Shalmaneser I (no. 3: 22-25 [/riao/Q005791.22/]) and Grayson's edition restores it accordingly.

add 141

In 2011, a glazed plaque bearing an inscription of Assurnasirpal II was discovered at Idu (modern Tell Satu Qala); it was used as fill in a wall. The text preserves the first two word of the one-line inscriptions; the king's titles are completely broken away.

Access the composite text [http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/riao/Q008370/] of Ashurnasirpal II add 141.
