Philological commentary

n1yśiñātsi looks like it is the same form as siñātsi/sijñātsi (PK DA M 507.35 a31, PK DA M 507.35 a47, PK DA M 507.38 a42). It is unclear what kind of sound is behind this variation, but it is obvious that it is not within the phonemic inventory of Tocharian. The same yś- onset is attested in yśuhkwā, suggesting that both of these names stem from the same language. Ching 2010: 432 argues that yśiñātsi is Chinese 十娘子 and siñātsi is 四娘子, 'the tenth daughter' and 'the fourth daughter', respectively.
n2reading uncertain, mikkite or mikkine
