"[The scribe is Ilimilku, the Shuba]nite, student of Attanu, the diviner, chief of priests, [and scri]be of Babel. But the one who recited this was he himself. [He wrote the words of the text in the hous]e of his master, but there was nobody (anymore) who taught him [(how) to put these words] into writing."
