Remarks

Philological commentary

n1tāṣäl: the akṣara a is relatively secure; the l is only compatible with the traces, other restorations would also be possible.
n2sa: a faint cross is visible on top, but if an akṣara was added below the line, it is now completely lost.
n3/// [m] p·lkassi: the likely restorations seem to be (ca)m p(ä)lkässi 'to torment him' or (tā)m p(ä)lkässi 'to torment her'. However, we have to assume that the spelling was mpä with the vowel sign ä instead of expected mpa with Fremdzeichen (the alternative mpa is rare anyhow).
