Commentary

Remarks

Philological commentary

n1 (ā)lym(a)śläkk ats: a variant of the more frequent āñmaśläkk ats (5 times) and āymaśläkk ats (A 214 a5, A 261 a3).
n2 suda[so] ///: frequent sudarśaṃ ri is excluded.
n3 Considering the occurrences of the variant āymaśläkk ats, it seems that it might anticipate verbal forms like träṅkäṣ (see A 214 a5) or pältsäṅkāṣ (see A 261 b3).
n4 Together with Carling and Pinault 2023: 525, s.v. Sutasome, we could restore sudasome vel sim.
