The Hittite text KUB 17.35 i 17'-37' (CTH 525) is part of a tablet belonging to the genre of cult-inventories. Cult inventories are among the numerous tablets regarding the cult, which were found mainly in Hattuša, as well as in a few other sites outside the capital. Most of the tablets were brought together by Laroche in the CTH under numbers 501-530. KUB 17.35 is one of the inventory texts from the time of Tudhaliya IV, dating to the end of the 13th century. The texts record materials for the cult (such as offerings, and cult objects) and temple personnel, and include descriptions of temple functions, especially festivals. The inventory texts therefore include important information about the cult and its institutions.

The aim of this paper is to offer an interpretation of the rite described in the Hittite text KUB 17.35 i 17'-37' under the name EZEN pulaš. By relating it to other Hittite texts and by comparing it with the installation text of a priestess in Emar, to which it reveals striking correspondences, it may be interpreted as the rites surrounding the appointment and installation of a new priest.
