Philological commentary

It could either be yap, ysāre, āka, āka lyekśiye or śātre, given the other attestations of śwasiṣṣe.
n1There is an odd metathesis of 'm' and 'n' in this form - we would expect saṅkrāmne (from skr. saṃghārāma-.
n2sic! for some reason, the fremdzeichen 'L' is used instead of the regular sign.
