Pahlavi Texts, Part IV (SBE37), E.W. West, tr. [1892], at

p. 501


P. 89, ll. 9, 10, for 'the Irânian nationality (Aîrîh)' read 'subjection (hêrih)'

P. 186, ll. 19, 20, for 'preparation' read 'bespattering'

In several places it would be better to read âmûkŏ,' teaching,' instead of hamô-kun, 'every kind (or mode),' so as to obtain the following amended passages:—

P. 23, ll. 14-16. Then the exalting chanted teaching of Aûharmazd for Zaratûst is called, &c.

P. 24, l. 1, the teaching for Kaî-Vistâsp; &c.

P. 114, ll. 15-18, the meritoriousness in the guardianship and teaching by the keepers of those flocks; the happy effect of the flock and that of the keeper's teaching; &c.

      „  ll. 23-28, that of the disciple through the teaching by the priestly instructor; the teaching of the priestly instructor for the pupil, and the happy effect of the priestly instructor's teaching in similar matters.

P. 119, ll. 2-5, the want of eminence of any one through a teaching that is an offence to others, which is owing to his closed doors and evil eminence in teaching; &c.

Professor Darmesteter has suggested the following correction:—

P. 26, ll. 22, 23, for 'based upon the traditional early law (vâsarîdsdâdŏ)' read 'dependent upon Vâêgerêd the Pêsdian;' [who was the twin brother of Hôshâng; see Sachau's Albîrûnî's Chronology of Ancient Nations, pp. 206, 211].
