Whether this fragment is to be classified as a cult inventory is uncertain. If so, it features an exceptional case, since it contains a celebratory preamble of Tudḫaliya IV, apparently related to Ḫattušili’s alleged “recapture” of Nerik and the subsequent measures of cult restoration (Cammarosano 2013: 72; for related texts and propaganda see Cammarosano 2018: 332-34 with literature).
