[1] Tathāgate. Is Tapussa he of Vin., Mhv. i, 4 and A. iv, 438?

[2] Niṭṭhaṃ gato; a monkish gloss, quoted by P.E.D., observes: pabbajitānaṃ arahattaṃ patta; but here all are home-folk who are said have won to Nibbāna, the deathless. For some not otherwise noted here see G.S. i, 22 ff.

[3] Iriyati.

[4] I number differently from the text. For Pūraṇa and Isidatta, see above VI, Ī 44; Menṇḍaka at V, Ī 33; Ariṭṭha at K.S. v. 278, is a monk; for Vāseṭṭha see D. iii, 80; M. ii, 169; but these must be different; for Sandhāna see DA. i, 45; for Bhallika see p. 313, A. 3. Our Comy. mentions Tavakaññika only, observing 'evan nāmako gahupati' which we already knew from the text! Is he connected with Tikñña of G.S. i, 145?
