Commentary

Philological commentary

n1The paper of this document is very thin, so the akṣaras on the other side are very visible and often times merge with the akṣaras on this side. e.g. the i here has a lot of ink surrounding it, but this is just the ā-diacritic on the other side being visible.
n2This is likely a form of spärk- 'disappear' or spänt- 'trust'.
