A problematic inscription (K. 1237)

Abstract : The tiny stela bearing the unpublished inscription K. 1237 is of unknown provenance. Some material aspects of the stela, and a number of scribal errors or other anomalies in the textual content of the inscription, make its authenticity uncertain. This paper furnishes an edition of the inscription, with translation and philological commentary. The problematic material aspects of the stela, and problematic compositional aspects of the Khmer and Sanskrit texts of the inscription are exposed, leading to the conclusion that the inscription is neither fully authentic nor fully fake.
