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.


Previous editions: Hazenbos 2003: 41-43.

This fragment, written in a cursive script with many corrections, contains descriptions of festivals. Noteworthy are the mention of king Tudḫaliya in line 17′ and the unusual spelling of the gods Ziparwa and Pirwa in lines 24′-25′.

24′: In view of the spelling pí-ru-wa-aš used for Pirwa (line 25′), it seems plausible to interpret the word zí-pa-ru-wa-[ as the DN Ziparwa (with omission of the divine determinative), here used either as separate entry or as GN, specifying URU.BÀD (Košak 1990: 147). It is booked together with Zipariwa in RGTC 6/2 198.
