Notes

Only the beginning of this incantation is left. The lyrical description of the wind over the sea is rare and atypical to incantations. Yet, as it is found in a multi-text tablet of Sumerian and Akkadian incantations, this text is, most probably, the hystoriola of an incantation – perhaps against flatus, or other gastrointestinal problems.
