NOTE: This is the second item in the Hetiba-ye Diha-fe collection, which is
made of the smaller texts in the Hetiha group. This one describes the actual
beginning of the Hetiha revolt, which was an aftereffect of a war in which the
province of Hemanathe (Desertedge) had been invaded by the nation called
Hemana (Desert) in Rihana-ye--the nation whose own name for itself is Jasas
(Fatherland) and whose language Jases Lalal I have been developing in recent months.
The governor Wivika who was appointed in the charter printed in Diha-fe I had
been killed during the war and replaced by the governor
Zalivane mentioned below. (Fuller accounts of this war are in other texts in
a separate collection.)
