*Below a quick sketch illustrating why I prefer reading "..leg sum..." in ms. PT 1297,
rather than "... legs sum..." (Lalou 1939-1961) or "... stag sum..." (OTDO and Takeuchi 1995)

Ms. PT 1297.3

** Concerning this date, see Takeuchi 1995 p. 154

*** Or could it be read "...khr[...]m sru dur btab" ? In which case it would mean something like "... zhang lHa bzang, and zhang Leg sum brtsan, and others, khr[...]m sru, were buried".
