1KUR EME.GI₇, “the land of Sumer”: Exs. 3–4 and 21 appear to have KUR EME.KI (with the third attestation in ex. 21 only written KUR EME without a following GI₇ or KI sign), while ex. 19 has KUR EME-ri. Based on these orthographies, it is possible that the scribes were reading the logogram EME as šumeri with KI as a determinative in the former case and ri as a phonetic complement in the latter.

2Ex. 4 leaves the space after an incomplete -reb (the text has -GIŠ) uninscribed, thus omitting bal-til.KI.
