Chapter Summary

Tablet 1.3 III may be divided into four parts. The first section consists of lines 1-2 of the column, preserved on the smaller fragment of CAT 1.3. Following this, there is a lacuna of about 20 lines before the main fragment of the tablet picks up the story. After the lacuna, we find ourselves in the middle of a speech by Baal as he gives instructions to his messengers, Gapn and Ugar, concerning a message to Anat that they are to deliver. This section as preserved opens in the middle of a description in lines 4-8 of someone performing a song about Baal and his women. Immediately after this description, Baal turns directly to the message he wishes to send to Anat. The final section of the column, lines 32-47, begins the account of the messengers' arrival at Anat's palace that continues into column IV.
