Collated (March 2020).

The fragment contains a fragmentary description of the cult image of the Sun goddess of Arinna (lines 1′-2′). Noteworthy is the heigth of the statuette, namely at least four UṬU-spans (Güterbock 1983: 210 fn. 53, Hazenbos 1990: 520).

Palaeography: Note the sign variant used for UDU (line 7′), with four verticals.
