Commentary

Remarks

In one frame with THT 555. The manuscript THT 522-557 consists of two layers of paper cut from a Chinese scroll. On this leaf, on one side only part of the Tocharian has been preserved (this part has not been edited in Sieg and Siegling 1953, where only the "Rückseite" is given. To be consistent, this non-edited part is here given as recto side (even though on IDP the sides have been switched).
