Collated (KBo 70.109, KUB 38.6, KUB 57.58, September 2012).

B1 i 27′ / A1 i 39′: on Hittite gurzipant- add to the literature cited in Cammarosano 2018: 463 Beckman 1995: 29 fn. 19.

A1 iv 30′: Correct Cammarosano 2018: 461 and translate D10 LÍL as “Storm god of the Countryside,” not “Ištar of the Countryside.”

A1 iv 36′: The form “EGI]R-an tar-nu-u-wa-i,” previously considered a mistaken Hittite form (Cammarosano 2018: 469-70), is to be interpreted instead as regular Luwian āppan tarnuwai “shall release,” a Heischefutur equivalent to Hittite āppan tarnumaš “to be released,” a formula which is sometimes found in colophons of cult inventories and other texts (kindly communicated by C. Melchert). For the leveling of the irregular paradigm of tarna- as tarnuwa-, compare tūwa- “to put.”
