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.

8′: I see no reason to emend all attestations of DUGšimallu (a dairy product) in GA!šimallu as advocated by CHD Š 369, cf. e.g. the use of DUG in DUGKA.GAG “KA.GAG-beer”.
