Commentary

Philological commentary

Ching 2010: 449-451.
**Nepautiśke is wrong. It must be read kepautiśke, a name also attested in SI 5874 a7 (cf. also kepautile in SI P 117). The confusion lies in the fact that the 'ka' is written open (cf. the 'ko' in moko) like in some Berlin and Russian documents and that the bottom part is cut off. Thus it looks a lot like 'n' or 't'.
n1The 'kñu' isn't really legible.
n2For tsäṅkana as highland barley, cf. Ching 2017: 165-166
