Commentary

Remarks

Transcription and references have been transferred from the "Text and Reference Database of the Tocharian A Language" (Gerd Carling Lund University) (funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation and SCAS).
Transcription and translation are based on Carling et al. 2009.

Philological commentary

n1The restoration of Siegling's personal copy (ñā)tsentu makes good sense from a semantic point of view. The akṣara remnants, however, render this reading improbable.
