Battering rams and shields were set up, they rent its walls. They breached its buttresses, they hewed the city with axes. They set fire to its stations, they …… the city's dwellings. They destroyed it, they demolished it. Unug, the good place, was …… with dust. Like a great wild bull wounded with an arrow, ……. Like a wild cow pierced with a spear, ……. The mighty one rushed with his weapons and …… implements of war. Subir, rising up like a swelling floodwave, ……. They trampled (?) through the streets and ……. They let the blood of the people flow like that of a sacrificial cow, they tore out everything that had been built.
