Commentary

Linguistic commentary

Further names in -warme are: āryawarme, kṣemawarme, yaśovarme, ślawarme (= Śīlavarman). A name in -śarme (= Skt. -śarman) would theoretically also be possible.

Philological commentary

This colophon is found at the end of Mātṛceṭa's Prasādapratibhodbhava and is followed by the beginning of the Varṇārhavarṇastotra.
