Commentary

Remarks

Lower (of side a) left part of a leaf. The left margin is preserved in a3 and b1.

Philological commentary

n1 ṣ·: ṣ(a) can be excluded grammatically. As palaeographical possibilities remain, then, ṣ(e) and ṣ(i), of which the latter is the only ending that makes sense grammatically: without doubt an adjective in -ṣi modifying koññäktes.
