Commentary

Philological commentary

n1sic! It is difficult to say why there isn't a genitive here.
n2This is most probably a nominative singular. The expected form would be oṅkorño. We are most likely dealing with the very common alternation between -o and -iye, cf. yoko - yokiye, ścono - śconiye, koṣko - koṣkīye.
