Announcements

  • The Zotero library underlying the CEToM bibliography is now public and can be viewed here.
  • We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Oberlies and Pratik Rumde from the Seminar für Indologie und Tibetologie of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen for providing our project with scans of the nachlass of Wilhelm Siegling. The nachlass includes letters to and from Siegling throughout his career that are of great importance to the history of the field of Tocharian studies. This material will be published on CEToM, accompanied by transcriptions of the letters, in the course of 2024.

Commentary

Name based on the Skt. pava- 'purification', with the well-known Tocharian suffix -śke, cf. Krause 1953: 12. Pava is the name of a son of Nahuṣa, in the Viṣṇupurāṇa, cf. Monier-Williams 1899: 610,3.
