Commentary

Philological commentary

The clearly readable words are unknown; it is unclear whether we are dealing with Tocharian words at all; according to Pinault 1987: 181, maybe "une formule magique" because of the consonance of the ending.

Remarks

Graffito on potsherd; for the photo, see Pinault 1987: pl. XCIII-1.
