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.


Collated (March 2020). Fragment of a 25 mm thick tablet; fine-grained clay, now of a yellowish color.

The fragment preserves fragmentary cult object descriptions on the obverse, and rests of what seems to be a colophon on the reverse. Athletes are possibly mentioned in obv. 3′. In obv. i 7′ and 10′ the rare word pargašti “height” is attested.

i 4′: The mention of shoulders points to a winged deity, cf. KUB 38.2 i 8′, 22′.

i 9′: At the beginning of the line, the traces of two Winkelhaken drawn in the copy correspond most probably to scratches (collated). According to HW2 Ḫ 314, the word ḫarmaḫazi-x[ … ] occurs only here and in the oracle report KUB 50.50; it is probably related to Luwian ḫarmaḫi/a- “head.”
