I just read in class some of the "queries to the sun god", and have a question concerning SAA 4, 9:
Text: K 11476 = AGS 57, nB Schrift

I l. 8, Starr reads:
8 lu-ú 1[mu-gal-lu a]-di! °Á!.KAL! mál! KI!-šu° [x x x x x x x x]

I would like to know wether a reading
lu-ú p°Mu-gal°-[lu] °kur° Mi-[li]-da-[a-a]

is possible.
It fits better to line 9:
lu-ú pIš-kal-°lu°-ú ma¦t (KUR) Ta-ba-la12 (=lam)-a-[a lu-ú ....]

as well as to l. r. 1´:
lu-ú pMu-gal-lu ma¦t! (KUR!) °Mi°-[li-da-a-a lu-ú ....]

and we avoid the difficult reading
a]-di! emuqi (= USU = °A2!.KAL!) mál! itti-šu (KI!-šu°) [lu-ú ....]

which, as far as I can see, does not fit entirely good to the sign traces according to the copy.

I also wonder who might be the Person named in the final break of l. 8: [lu-ú PN],
as it hardly can mean just any other enemy, this being stated in l. 10:
lu-ú LÚ[KÚR] mam-ma .....

Can anyone help me?

Thanks a lot,
