Announcements

  • The Zotero library underlying the CEToM bibliography is now public and can be viewed here.
  • We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Oberlies and Pratik Rumde from the Seminar für Indologie und Tibetologie of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen for providing our project with scans of the nachlass of Wilhelm Siegling. The nachlass includes letters to and from Siegling throughout his career that are of great importance to the history of the field of Tocharian studies. This material will be published on CEToM, accompanied by transcriptions of the letters, in the course of 2024.

Commentary

Philological commentary

The editors argue that (pi) is to be restituted between wa and [ku], and that we should read (su)wa (pi)[kuln](e). The only king whose 11th year on the throne corresponded to the year of the pig was Kṣemārcune. Thus this inscription can be dated to 771.
