The identification of personal names is assumed to be heavenly due probably to the fact that this follow up a personal name type and were not immediately perceived as a designation of deities. The spelling of the name of the God-classifier acted at least in the late early dynastic period as graphical marker, came naturally from an analog momentum. M. Krebernik favors the non-theophoric interpretation and concludes that dumuzi (d) is in the early dynastic period anchored, probably as an abbreviated personal name. The difficulty that offers overrides the classifier for the gods then, he tries example with the assumption that the classifier was abducted by theonym ago to solve. The original text of the chapter is in German.
