Commentary

In this parallel, closely similar passage, Katuwa records:

Karkamiš A11a (2.20B)

§7

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

§8

(not properly understood)

§9

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

§10

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

§11

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