Abstract: The paper edits, translates and comments on LKA 64, a royal hymn from the reign of Aššurnaṣirpal II that deals with the only trans-Euphratian military campaign of this king. Furthermore, it analyses the narratological setup of the text in minute detail and compares the results to the poetics of LKA 64’s Middle Assyrian predecessor LKA 63 from the reign of Tiglath-Pileser I. Lastly, the article draws attention to the rather exceptional narrative style that was used by the scribes of Aššurnaṣirpal II.
