There are some interesting things in this inscription. Here painter
is described as scribe or writer as in other inscriptions of tablet
expressing riks*ita " scribed/written" to "painted".
The Sanskrit word Pratistha is written here variously-pratisatha-, pratitha-kr*ta
and padhita(pratistha-pita). The most remarkable thing is that here
Sanskrit "tithi" is synonimised by Newari -hnu in "mad*ga
s'udhi cya-hnusa" for Sanskrit Marga s'udhi as*t*ami-tithau.
