Commentary

Remarks

In one frame with A 443, A 445, A 445.a-A 445.d and A 445.f-A 445.g. The lower margin of the recto (upper of the verso) is preserved. There is a blank space of the size of approximately one akṣara at the end of line a5, but according to the verso, this is not the string hole space.

Philological commentary

n1 wartsyi(s): although the reading is difficult, the i-vocalism seems assured. This i after y seems to occur only in the genitive, cf. A 336 a8.
