A few scribal errors can be seen. A case arises with a tablet (Assur 14067d) dated 4:vi: mlu-dà-ri which could be either Bēl-lū-dāri (730 and PC) or Šarru-lū-dāri (664). Archival context suggests that the latter date is the most probable. The title of Danānu (680) was governor of Manṣuāte, but on one tablet the scribe has made him governor of Marqasi, which was the title of the eponym two years before (Nabû-šarru-uṣur).
