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 transliteration has been taken from Zhao and Rong 2020: 144.
The transcription has been taken from Zhao and Rong 2020: 144.
n1 The most probable explanation for this form is that the vowel diacritics were added after the main body of the akṣaras. The person who wrote the inscription then did not put the diacritics in the right place. Thus we have tene śam instead of tane śem.
