Commentary

Remarks

This small manuscript is not the same as "No. 311 A" in Sieg and Siegling 1921: 167. In one frame with THT 945 (= A 311). Lower margin of the recto (upper of the verso) preserved.

Philological commentary

Maybe something like (kal)kar tä, as in A 310 a3?
n1Based on the manuscript, a reading ntu instead of tu seems possible.
n2Based on the traces on the manuscript, one may tentatively restore (śäm)lu(ne).
