A balbale to Nanna (Nanna B): composite text

1 [me-a-am-ra me-e mu-un-...]
(The restoration is based on a catch line which concludes one ms. of another Nanna hymn (AO 5386 (TCL 15 21), Nanna A); on the fragmentary compendium tablet inscribed with Nanna B, the two hymns occur in sequence, as do the two incipits in a catalogue (0.2.06, ll. 2-3)
