Commentary

Philological commentary

Reading, restoration and translation basically according to K.T. Schmidt apud Wille 1989: 189.
n1 According to Schmidt, an alternative reading (śla)k\ śkaṃ is also possible, but since there is no virāma dot on the k\ in line b3, -käṃ is still more likely.

Remarks

Verso Sanskrit, recto TA; Tocharian text edited and identfied by K.T. Schmidt apud Wille 1989: 189 no. SHT 1561.
