Philological commentary

n1klāṅka-ṃ: cf. Carling et al. 2009: 176b.
n2: cf. A 97 b6 vedaśāstraṃ.
n3ñ(u)k nu: another possibility would be ñ (k)[a]knu. There is no vowel sign on top of the ‹ñ›, and there seems to be no ligature part below it, but a lower part ‹k› or ‹u› cannot be excluded.
n4(ā)ly(a)käñcaṃ: this variant is attested once more in A 267 a1, against ālakäñcaṃ in A 12 a3, A 15 a6, A 110 b5 (Sieg et al. 1931: 193).
