Commentary

Remarks

Fragment of a large leaf right behind the string hole, traces of vertical and horizontal ruling; on the verso side only the left part is covered with writing up until an ornamental vertical line, which is typical of the final leaf and colophon of a manuscript; does not belong with either of the 14A leaves.

Philological commentary

n1The supplementation päkre is not possible; an alternative reading could be p(·)äk(·)aṃ.
n2(a)padāṃ = avadāna-
n3cf. the Skt. PN citradyuti-.

Linguistic commentary

n4ṣkaimpa is the Kom. of a fem. PN.
