PBS XIV: The worshiping of two standing deities. The first has a horned mitre, his hair tied in a swallow tail, a flounced robe, his hand extended low. The second steps forth like Martu, one hand to his breast, the other hanging. He has a conical hat, a beard, his hair tied in a swallow tail, a short fringed tunic. The usual divine attendant adores with both hands up.
“servant of Nergal//servant of Ragamirik”
The last name meaning: “of the far reaching cry,” is perhaps an epithet of the storm god Ramman-Adad.
