37.
Anunitum and the agrarian worker LU.CHUN.GA

38./39.
Those are the gods on the Path of the Moon, through which the Moon passes within a month, and which it touches.

AK:
Those were the lines of the MUL.APIN clay tablet Nr. 86378, scarcely larger than a wallet (6 cm x 8.4 cm). It is tablet which tells us more about ancient culture and civilization than most of the hundreds of thousands of pages written since then in ignorance of its contents. See in this connection also my posting at LexiLine.com about:
"Table of the Path of the Moon : Origin of the Names of the Months as determined by the cuneiform MUL.APIN tablet : Historical equivalence of the months by the MUL.APIN Path of the Moon for the Sumerians Akkadians Babylonians Pharaohs Hebrews Sanskrit Maya plus Sumerian Sons of God (Heliacal Star Risings) and City (Stellar) Reigns as well as The Twelve Tribes of Israel and their Monthly comparables."
