(The ms. tradition for lines 193-199 is extremely confused about the order in which the various auras are assigned; the following sequence is a compromise:) He gave Ḫuwawa's first aura to the fields. He gave his second aura to the rivers. He gave his third aura to the reedbeds. He gave his fourth aura to the lions. He gave his fifth aura to the { palace } { (1 ms. has instead:) debt slaves }. He gave his sixth aura to the { forests } { (1 ms. has instead:) the hills }. He gave his seventh aura to Nungal(the goddess of prisoners).
