Commentary

Remarks

Edited as no. 342 in Sieg and Siegling 1953: 223-224, the fragment now has the pressmark THT 1585.a. On IDP, recto and verso are reversed. This mansucript is basically written in the common archaic script type, but it already shows standard-shaped signs beside the old ones (e.g., open-shaped 〈ma〉 beside closed-shaped); cf. Malzahn 2007a: 264.
