commentary

a.1. ṭio could be read for ṇo but ratio is impossible.

a.2. Perhaps no letter lost between b and r; F]ẹbrụạṛ[i- is therefore possible but is not an easy reading.

a.4. c̣oris (cf. 154.7 and note) is not impossible but is not probable.

b.4. The as symbol also occurs in c.3; here it appears to be followed by a symbol unlike any other we have seen in the tablets (but there is no certainty that all the traces on the photograph are ink).
