This article examines a letter composed by an Ugaritian administrator stationed in Cyprus. A new edition and translation of the text is offered, which allows for a more accurate linguistic and historical analysis of its content. Certain elements in the text, such as a unique blessing formula (lines 6–9), indicate that the letter’s addressee was not in fact the Pharaoh Amenophis III, but rather the King of Ugarit. In addition, a new reading of the final section of the text (line 39) suggests that the administrator intends to purchase ships on behalf of his Ugaritian overlord.
