His subjects were dispersed, so he began a mobilization of his troops. Like a wrestler who is about to enter the great courtyard, he …… his hands towards (?) the E-kur. Like an athlete bent to start a contest, he treated the giguna as if it were worth only thirty shekels. Like a robber plundering the city, he set tall ladders against the temple. Though the temple was not a mountain of cedars, he had large axes cast to be used against it. { (1 ms. adds 1 line:) He had double-edged agasilig axes sharpened to be used against it. } As if they were for great tracts of land with { huge } { (1 ms. has instead:) wide } carp-filled waters, he cast large { spades } { (1 ms. has instead:) …… to be used against the E-kur }. He put spades against its roots. (unknown no. of lines missing)
