Commentary

Philological commentary

n1 The assumption that the scribe simply made a mistake is not that problematic, since the scribe of PK LC 10 has made the exact same mistake, but corrected himself afterwards.
n2 For poñe instead of poñ, cf. PK LC 11 a4. This is corroborating evidence for poñe = poñ, since wrattsai we- is a set phrase that means 'answer'.
