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.


This fragment lists offerings, of a kind not very typical for cult inventories.

2: On the unclear word occurring here see Soysal 2009: 300; the photo does not allow the reading NINDAzunzu.

7: In this context, [šu]nniyanzi is more likely than [u]nniyanzi.

8: According to J. Miller (KBo 53 VI), the writing LA-AB-KA4 is found elsewhere only in IBoT 2.5 i 3′ and KUB 20.90 iii 9, 11.
