||The meter at the beginning seems to consists of seven-syllable cola. Maybe 4 x 14; the one beginning in b3 is unclear.
||The reading lokanma is certain, one cannot restore ślokanma or sklokanma.
||kaccalyasa is the perl.sg. of an action noun kaccalya, but the obl.sg. is so far known as kaccalyai. The present form is due to a mistake or to analogy. The next word yokasso has to be a form of an adj. yokassu*, according to a productive pattern in -ssu; the precise case form is uncertain, but if it is true that we have a seven-syllable meter, the nom.pl.masc. yokassoñc or obl.sg.masc. yokassont are to be preferred.
||sämpāre is a 3.pl. Pt I form of a yet unattested root sämp- or sämpā -.
||nal is certain; the damaged lower part looks like 〈s〉 at first glance, but the bow is far too much drawn to the left; it is rather part of a 〈ra〉 or 〈ū〉.
||ppyā starts another ipt. form, which, however, cannot be one made from a root in p-, because those do not have the ipt. particle p(ä)-; the double pp is rather due to sandhi.
