Basis of the edition

The present edition is based on the photographs available at the Mainzer Photoarchiv of the Hethitologie Portal Mainz, as well as the available hand-copies and relevant secondary literature up to 2019. When the original manuscripts have been collated, this is noted in the commentary.


obv. 2′: The nature of the professional designation šarmeya- and its possible relation to the wild animal called šarmiya are unclear, see CHD Š 278-79.

obv. 4′: The DN is restored following Rost 1963: 189 (and van Gessel 2001: 53), but other names are possible.

obv. 8′: The GN is read “Duwata” in Rost 1963: 189 and RGTC 6 449, but this name is unattested elsewhere and the traces of the alleged DU may read just as well LA; the two inscribed verticals present in the copy are not visible on the original manuscript (collated in March 2020).
