Textual tradition



KBo 13.250

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: 88-90.

Collated (March 2020). This fragment is written in a tiny cursive script, similar to that of KBo 26.151 and KBo 49.111 (q.v.). As in KBo 26.151, the lines of the script tend to raise from left to right. However, a join with KBo 26.151 is ruled out by the different width of the intercolumnium (12 mm in KBo 13.250, 7 mm in KBo 26.151, both faces).

l. col. 5′: Note the pithos “of wheat and wine,” cf. the two pithoi for wheat and wine of KBo 49.310 rev. 6′ (with commentary) and KUB 21.17 rev. iii 9′-17′, discussed in Cammarosano 2018: 134.

r. col. 13′: The sign may be taken as ZÉ, but a restoration zenaš seems unlikely in view of the mention of this festival in the following line.
