Example text

MEŠ-IÛF Ìp-pár-ŠÌ-du i 62-88) In my accession year: 20,000 Musku with their five kings, who had held for 50 years the lands Alzu (i 65) and Purulumzu — bearers of tribute and tithe to the god Aššur, my lord — (the Musku), whom no king had ever repelled in battle, being confident of their strength they came down (and) (i 70) captured the land Katmuhu. With the support of the god Aššur, my lord, I put my chariotry and army in readiness (and), not waiting for my rear guard, I traversed the rough terrain of Mount Kašiiari.

It is odd that he does not mention the fact that Aššur-rêša-iši i rebuilt the Anu-Adad temple (RIMA 1 pp. 7-8). 2-4 are successively later. CATALOGUE Ex.
