Manuscript Features

Exposures 2 to 6 top and 7 bottom to 8 belong to the Ratnaketuparivarta. The folio photographed in exp. 6 bottom and 7 top belong to another unidentified text. Written in 5th to 6th century script primarily found in the Gilgit manuscript collection. Note however that Cecil Bendall photographed this manuscript in 1889 and his report was published in 1890 some forty years before the discovery of the Gilgit manuscript collection. De la vallée Poussin published a transcript of this manuscript in 1908. Lora Sander attributes this script to the 6th century in the common era.
