1If the sign name and hence entry is correctly identified, this entry should deal with the logogram group PA.SAG as spelling for the god Hendursag. The small Assur manuscript VAT 12073 has only ŠU, but the remains in the present text support the divine classifier.

2The identification of the previous entry is also confirmed by the presence of the modification gunû in this entry corresponding to entry 30 of Diri. The sign name for USAN or GU₂g is attested in a MA Ea-manuscript from Assur (VAT 9532): gu-gu-[nu-u₂] (see the photo on the Digitale Keilschrift Bibliothek). According to MSL 15, 168 this entry is followed by a short break. The present text shows that the Akkadian subcolumn contained a number of equivalents for this logogram group.

3This entry seems to correspond to Diri V, 31-33. While the MB manuscript CBS 11141 uses the sign name ugula amašaku, the present text represents the complex logogram group accurately. The sign name for the complex grapheme DAG.|KISIM₅×UDU.MAŠ₂| is also attested in the NB Ea-manuscript A 2480: da-ag ša₂ ki-si-ma-ku u₂-da ma-[ša₂ i-gub].

4The sign remains in subcolumn 3 appear to belong to the compound logogram rather than a sign name, which would in this case be rather long.

5The sign name appears to contain a rather learned writing: nita₂-ba-ku for ni-da-ba-ku; for the latter see Gong 2000: 165.

6Both on the present text and ms. H (BM 46822), for which see the introduction, qubūru is preceded by ŠU-u, which is a technical remark in lexical texts that denotes that equivalent in subcolumn 4 is loaned from the compound logogram's reading; see for the suggestion ekurrû MSL XV, 179 s.v. 301a.

7The sign name is noteworthy: ka-rak-ku appears to render KAR₂ (i.e., GAN₂t), for which sign names usually provide the rendering ga-na te-nu-u₂. Diri VIB, 47 provides for the compound logogram LU₂×GAN₂t the sign name ša₂ lu-la-ku ga-na te-en-na i-gub. We therefore would expect in our text: MIN(e) ša₂ lu-la-ku ga-na te-en-na i-gub a-a-ak-ku. Ms. H (BM 46822) appears also to have ka#-rak-ku. It is therefore likely that the compound logogram in the break was rather E₂.LU₂/SAG.GAN₂t.

8The Akkadian verbal form should be ikâd, but the last sign does not support a suitable reading.
