In this parallel, closely similar passage, Katuwa records:

Karkamiš A11a (2.20B)


My lord Tarhunza, Karhuha and Kubaba1 loved me because of my justice,


(not properly understood)


and the Grain-God and the Wine-God for me [they brought forth],


and in my good-times for a sheep the cost (?) (as) [so many] homers of barley stood,


but I myself then constructed the temple with luxury for Karkamišean Tarhunza.
