Commentary

Philological commentary

n1Here we can likely restore mrā(caṃ), see Carling and Pinault 2023, s.v. ksärki, as well as A 48 b2, A 380 b2.
n2As suggested in Sieg and Siegling 1921: 242 and in Carling and Pinault 2023: 456 s.v. wsā-yok, we can restore (wsā) yokāṃ. In a similar context, cf. also A 315 and 316 a2-a3 wsā-yokāṃ poke rsoräṣ sopisyo yetu(nt) (prāru)yo and A 273 a1-a2sopisyo yetuñcäs parnoñcä(s) (tsarnā).
n3A tentative restoration is suggested by Carling and Pinault 2023: 243, proposing naṣ.
n4Eventually (pä)l(k)orä(ṣ) as in b2?
n5Maybe ā(ṣānik) as in a4?
n6As suggested by Carling and Pinault 2023: 62 s.v. īme, with reference to Itkin and Malyshev 2021: 65, who propose the reading [ī]me päl[tsä](k).
