Commentary

Parallel texts

Uv 1.36

Philological commentary

Anityavarga (I), part two. The fact that this belongs to this section is indicated by the quotation of Uv I 36, but it is not possible to determine recto and verso side with any certainty, since only 4 lines with a single strophe-number are preserved.

Remarks

The original manuscript is missing, but was a small fragment of only 4 lines.
