Remarks

Philological commentary

n1 rackiñ: although the reading is not certain, this seems to be the only possible one. The word ratäk 'army' is usually supposed to inflect as nātäk 'lord', but the fact that the obl.pl. rackis shows unexpected c and i (Sieg et al. 1931: 112) suggests another inflexion for the plural, which would fit rackiñ in fact well.
n2 (kä)lnäṣṣ: Restoration due to Ilya Itkin (p.c. 5 July 2014).
n3 : cf. A 312 b4 epreriss āntaṃ.
n4 triwanträ: cited by Sieg et al. 1931: 389 and Malzahn 2010: 671.
n5 : cf. A 378 a4 ywār tr(i)weñci.
