Commentary

Philological commentary

n1This seems to be the most likely restoration. If we understand the phrase śle trukāle kantine as '(the flour) as bread and allotment taken together', then we would be dealing in this case with an example in which the flour for 'allotment' and the flour as bread are listed seperately.
n2This Chinese character also occurs in the inscription Kz-221-ZS-D-06.
