(i 6) Tabnēa, the governor of the land of Sūḫu, went up to Assyria with his tribute for an audience, but he killed him in Assyria. Then the inhabitants of the city Anat revolted against the land of Sūḫu. They joi[ned] hands with the Assyrian and brought the Assyrian up to the city Anat. The Assyrian [to]ok the city Anat neither by force nor by battle; (rather) the men the citizens of the city themselves gave (it) [to] the Assyrian. Afterwards, the Assyrian exiled them and scattered them over (all) the lands. He turned the houses on (both) the landside and the hillside of the city Anat into heaps of ruins. Then the Assyrian settled his own men in the city Anat.

(i 22b) From (the time of) Tabnēa, Iqīša-Marduk, and Nasḫir-Adad three governors (in all) for fifty years, the city Anat was (under the control) of the Assyrian, (and also) for three years, in the days of Šamaš-rēša-uṣur, ditto (governor of the land of Sūḫu and the land of Mari), my father, bef[ore] ... [... I ascended] the throne of [my] father. When the gods Adad and Apla-[Adad] set [...], the city A[nat] returned (its allegiance) [to my father]. After four [years], during which the city Anat pros[pered], when [my father di]ed (lit. [went] to his fate”), I [ascended] the throne of my father. I (re-)established the regular offerings, offe[rings, (...)] and festivals of the god Adad [(...)] according to the wording (of the commands) of Ḫam[mu]-rāp[i, king of Babylon, and] the father who begot me. [(...)] Moreover, I settled people in the city Anat on (both) the landside and on the h[ill]side. I settled the city of Anat as (it had been) before, on (both) the landside and the hillside. I returned the gods of (both) the landside [(and the hillside) of] the city Anat who had gone [t]o the town Ribaniš on account of the Assyrian ... and I settled them in their dwelling(s), (just) as (they had been) before.
