The three šar (i.e. 3,240 iku) of the field Dabta are assigned for the benefit of Enlil { (2 mss. add:) , Ninlil } and Ninurta. Of this, { three bur (i.e. 54 iku) } { (1 ms. has instead:) three BURgunû (i.e. 540 iku) } are the portion of the men in charge of the requisitions. Iqbisum and Abī-qātī have made a claim over one bur (i.e. 18 iku) at the bottom of the field. If our king consents, he should send a courier and should …… the instructions for doing the work and for the boundary stakes of the field.
