The action of katta iskiske-, "rubbing oneself down," with [I.sub.3], "oil/fat," is paralleled with the rubbing of oath-curses into the body, katta iskiyan esdu. The fact that the anointing is self-administered most likely reflects the conditional self-imprecation assumed by the one who takes the oath.
