The following examines the Akkadian scribal annotation tayyartu, 'greturn,'h demonstrating that it refers to a repetitive section of a text that was not copied by the scribe. Editions of two texts where this annotation occurs, a M.s Pi-type incantation and an Emesal prayer, are included. In addition, the phenomenon of repetition and abbreviation in incantations and Emesal prayers is briefly discussed.
