Chapter Summary

At some point in the lacuna of about 16 lines at the beginning of the column, the scene shifts to Athirat, El's wife and mother of the gods. The column consists of three parts: (1) Athirat is introduced performing domestic chores; (2) she then notices the approach of Baal and Anat and reacts in fear; and (3) then she sees the gifts in tow and realizes they are coming in peace. Lines 34ff. are too broken for certain interpretation. Athirat is not mentioned by name until lines 28-29, but it is clear from context that she is the subject of the narrative in this column.
