Commentary

Remarks

In one frame with A 408.j-A 408.l and A 408.n-A 408.r. The right part of the string hole space is preserved.

Philological commentary

n1y[ä](·)k· ///: the top of the k is not preserved, but an r is needed to account for the non-syncopated ä.
n2/// ññamār lyā – ///: the word division is uncertain. Apparently ññamār is a 1sg.prs.-sbj.mid. of a verb in -äyññ- (type tuṅkiññamār; however, precisely the 1sg.mid. of this class is so far unattested, so that it is uncertain whether it would end in ññamār or ñmār. Alternatively, one could think of a 1sg.prs.sbj.act. in ññam; the following ārlyā – /// could be a ger. of arā- 'cease', although one would then perhaps rather expect ārlyāṃ.
