Chapter Summary

This chapter provides bibliography, text, textual notes, translation and vocalized text, commentary for KTU 1.2 III. The contents of the first part of the textual fragment, lines 2-11 a, appear in a variant form in the latter portion of 1.1 III 19-29, specifically the travel to El's abode and his commands to Kothar to construct a palace for Yamm. Caquot and Sznycer don't see two discrete parts; rather, Athtar is the subject of both parts. In the first part, he and not Kothar travels to El to register his complaints about a house for Yamm. The references to Kothar in this section are taken by Caquot and Sznycer as part of El's speech detailing his decision to commission a palace for the Sea-god. There is unfortunately no reference to Athtar to indicate that he is the one who travels to El.
