Philological commentary

n1At first glance, the '¯Ś' at the end of the line looks like a 'sa', but compare the 'sa' at the beginning of a3. Also, there is a very light virāma-stroke between 'pe' and 'ŚA'. So even though the 'ŚA' looks a bit weird, it cannot be anything else.
n2The au-diacritics are written in a very peculiar way in this document. They are written like a cross: There's a vertical stroke and a horizontal, slightly bent stroke going through the vertical stroke. The o-diacritics are also similar to THT 2805 and PK NS 285.
