Commentary

Philological commentary

Maybe tsamo yṣuwarsa 'with much friendliness'.
There are some sort of ornamental lines on the top and the bottom of the fragment. The bottom line seems to consist of 'o'-akṣaras turned by 90°.
n1It seems like the scribe initially wrote 'y' and then sloppily corrected it into 'ś'.
