Commentary

Philological commentary

The way the date is written here is rather strange. One would expect the name of the king to be written before lānte, not after. Also, one kṣutsa is superfluous here. For a similar example, see Kz-145-ZS-R-14.
n1Could be Indradewe, cf. Kg-012-YD-N-01. Sadly, the precise date of this king's rule is not known.
