Commentary

Philological commentary

n1At first sight, this looks like na-, but upon closer inspection, there is a hook on the bottom that is characteristic of open ka and not shared by the other na of this document. This word may be kaṣṣu 'costus speciosus'.
n2Most likely a form of sanāp- 'rub, anoint'. Maybe a participle sasanāpau (cf. kākālākā-), but the accent would be strange.
