b4 ... they kept worrying for their life. Thereupon they give up them on the thorny ground of hell.
b5 ... they flay their flesh. Until they throw them by hundreds, thousands, myriads (?).

Commentary

Linguistic commentary

This text shows both unexpected geminates at the beginning of words (rres(k)e(mane) in b3, kkents(a) in b4) and simplification of geminates (paneṃ in a2).

Remarks

The fragments of the PK AS 19 series (19.1-19.22) all belong to the same manuscript. There are traces of the leaf number on left margin of the verso. Left side of a leaf including the string hole. The string hole seems only to interrupt the third line.

Philological commentary

n1 The gap is about 5.5 cm.
n2 The first readable word of the line could be read as paneṃ and belong to the root pänn- as subjunctive 3.pl. if one excepts reduction of the geminate. However, the reading is not clear.
n3 The paper is very damaged. There might be traces of akṣaras from another manuscript. It is possible that the string hole also interrupts this line.
