The description of Aqhat's burial in KTU 1.19:iii:41 has been the source of considerable controversy over the past five decades. The primary issue has revolved around the uncertain reading of the last word of the line. A new collation, supported by macro-photographs, argues for reading the disputed word as bknrt, instead of bknkn or bknkt. The meaning of the word, knrt, however, remains obscure.
