Commentary

Remarks

The fragments of the PK AS 19 series (19.1-19.22) all belong to the same manuscript. This is an almost complete fragment including the string hole which interrupts line 3. The leaf number is 80. The fragment is quite damaged on the right side. One line on each side is hardly legible because of imprints by akṣaras from another leaf.

Philological commentary

n1 There are only illegible remnants of akṣaras on this line.
n2 The form uttaragaurapäṣṣe is an adjective derived from uttaragaurap-* which obviously is a borrowing from Sanskrit. The best connection would be with Skt. Uttarakaurava- 'inhabiting the continent Uttarakuru- Edgerton 1953 123a. This implies of course wrong sankritization of the source. The form kraitara has to be the first member of a compound ending in rup- 'face'. It looks as an Indo-Aryan word, but no plausible source has been found so far.
n3 In this line a piece of paper has wrongly been joined after taṣṣallona. It seems that the part it belongs to the next line after 〈pal〉 where it would fit perfectly giving the phrase palsko aśalle.
n4 The form kosraittse clearly shows a Tocharian suffix. The derivational base, however, is unknown so far.
n5 There are only illegible remnants of akṣaras on this line.
