Commentary

Remarks

Subgenre uncertain.
According to Broomhead 1962: 273 "[f]our lines written in large ductus, and very clearly preserved".

Philological commentary

n1(śamñā)ṃśkaṃtsa: oṃ seem excluded. Moreover, instead of soṃśka one might perhaps expect sauśka in this late text.
n2ṣeṃ: Perhaps ṣai is also possible.
