SEAL no. 7222
An incantation whose addressee is diqārum, a pot which was probably used for brewing beer (namzītum in OB), cf. Kouwenberg 2019, 61. The spell is meant to help the brewer control the brewing jar, namely that it will not stop fermenting until the beer is ready, nor that it will overflow.

1 (Brewing) pot! O (brewing) pot!
2–3 Your heaviness is a tell, your density is a full storeroom,
4–7 Your water is a sea, your porridge is a full cup, your dripping is a choice beer.
8–10 You are sworn by the name of An and Antu, Laḫmum and Dūrum, the earth and its watercourses,
11–15 You are sworn until I impose on you a stopper (bound with) a string - you shall not calm!
