Philological commentary

n1At the beginning of the line, (kerca)paisa might be restored.
n2tattau: the most likely reading would be tannau, but this would not fit with a known verbal paradigm (the root would be tännā-, cf. pännau ppt. of pännā-). As ta and na could be confused, it is here interpreted as the 1sg. of tättā- ‘to put’. Alternatively, a form of nānā- ‘to appear’.
