Commentary

Remarks

The fragments of the PK AS 19 series (19.1-19.22) all belong to the same manuscript. Only one side of this tiny fragment is readable. The fragment is very damaged and worn out. It can be suggested very tentatively that the fragment belongs to the left side of leaf before the string hole. The non-readable side of the fragment shows traces of akṣaras of another manuscript that have been superposed over the ones belonging to this manuscript.

Linguistic commentary

n1The verb mīṣṣäṃ would be a syncopated from of Prs IXb miyäṣṣäṃ with accent of the first syllable.

Philological commentary

n2The verb mīṣṣäṃ is the only possible reading; see linguistics commentary.
