Chapter Summary

Between the last understandable lines in column II and the beginning of intelligible narrative in column III, there is a lacuna of over thirty lines: twelve badly broken lines at the end of column II, twelve additional missing lines at the beginning of column III, followed by nine that are too broken to give a continuous translation. When the text becomes complete, the narrative introduces a speech by Baal that recounts a meeting of the divine council in which he was shamefully treated by another god. The function of this speech within the overarching story of Baal and Anat's visit with Athirat is not clear. Following the speech, the narrative continues with Baal and Anat arriving before Athirat, their presentation of the gifts they have brought, and a conversation with Athirat that concludes with the gods having a meal together.
