    • #1 Siglum: 6050
      Old Siglum: Jm4 (= R1)
      Type: INDIAN
      Current Location: Mobed Jamśedjī Māṇekjī Unvala (priv.)
      Manuscript Class: XA Sade Avestan
      Date: 1352 (? [date Āśīrwād])

      Notes: The ms. was designated first as R1; according to Geldner handwriting and paper of the ms. agree with the date given in the Āšīrwād (for which see also the ms. MRL F97.16 [Dhabhar 1923b, p. 54]). The introductory prayers are supplied by later hand, also NyXwar; since G 1–5 are missing, it seems that the old ms. lost its beginning folios on which were written the smaller prayers, the Gāhs and Ny 1. The quantity of the Yašts in Jm4 exceeds the daily obligation and the quantity of translated Yašts; it seems, as if already in the 14th c. the Parsis started creating XA–Mss. that were not in correlation to the daily prayer obligations.

"In the codex it is furthermore noted that Anquetil had seen it and had made mention of it" (Geldner); inside the note: "The Zend of Zeratusht in the ancient Persic character. Fras. P. 35". Anquetil writes: "J'en ai vu un pareil à Oxford, chez le Docteur Hunt. Il a été apporté en Angleterre par M. Frazer, qui l'avoit eu de Bikh, Destour Mobed de Surate. Le même Docteur possede les Néaeschs Zends; le Nékah, en Caracteres Zends, copiés l'an d'Iezdedjerd 1042 (de Jesus Christ 1672*). C'est un des Manuscrits du Docteur Hyde. The codex was ordered by Ērvad Kāmdīn Ērvad Bīharām Ērvad Rāmjī Aklesarā. *Lb1

      Notes: Fragment of a XA

      Manuscript History: Bartholomae writes: "36 lose Blätter, von rechts nach links gehend, auf den Umschlägen (…) von mir mit 0 bis 35 numeriert.

      Information: Bartholomae 1915, pp. 301–304

    • #2 Siglum: Katrak331
      Old Siglum: Katrak331
      Type: INDIAN
      Current Location: Mobed Sheriarji Dorabji Rabadi/Rustompura (priv.), Surat
      Manuscript Class: XA Sade Avestan
      Date: 1600 (aprox.)

      Notes: The ms. which was written "in Bālbōdh script" seems to be very old. It is remarkable that the XA includes besides YtOhr and YtArW the YtTiš, YtASA and YtMihr, which are usually not part of old XA mss. The writer of the ms. is according to Katrak the same as the writer of the ms. Katrak 330.
