Meš-ki-aĝ-Nanna, the son of Nanni, ruled for (ms. vD has:) { 48 } years. { ……, the son (?) of ……, ruled for (ms. IB has:) { 2 } years. (ms. IB has:) { 3 } kings; they ruled for { (ms. IB has:) 582 } { (ms. TL has instead:) 578 } years. } { (ms. vD has instead:) 2 kings; they ruled for 120 + X years. } Then Urim was { defeated } { (ms.
