Kha. vi. 002 ; viii. 2. Four packets of rotten, mud-embedded frs. of Pbthis in Skr. and Upright Gupta. Writing in places still legible. Three packets transferred from Kha. viii. 2. No. 457, Hoernle Reg.
Kha. viii. 2. a. Fragmentary fols. of this as well as of two following numbers (9 in all) belong to same Pôthi in Skr. and Upright Gupta; they are written by same hand, and on paper of same size and quality. Text appears to be from iryaralnaketu Mah4yina-sidra (see No. 461). The extant frs. measure from 84" to 94" in length, and from 41" to 6i" in width, and contain from 9 to 13 II. The string-hole and fol. No. are lost. The full width probably was 7', with 13 II.;
accordingly the extant length is probably about of the
whole, and the full length was probably about 2' r". Paper very thin, soft, and fragile. Identification made by Prof. de la Vallée Poussin.
The four frs. contain text of Ra1nakelu-dhitrani, the end of which occurs on bottom 1. of rev. of 4th fol. : imàriz Ranaketu-dhjravi bad ali sma II No. 46o, Hoernle Reg.
