If the name contains the nisbe the second a is long. 3 Cf. Stol (1998–2001, 148 § 5.2), who sees a “Synkretismus” between Nanaya and Isˇtar, whereas Westenholz (1997, 80) stresses that Nanaya was never “a manifestation of Isˇtar”. 4 Cf. Stol (1998–2001, 147 § 3). 5 Cf. her epithet nin kur-kur-ra “mistress of all countries” in the Sum. hymn Isˇbi-Erra C (Hallo 1966, 242–244; ETCSL 220.127.116.11) 3, see also 33.
