MS Malay 10


Incomplete text in Middle Malay of a series of invocations of saints and angels, whose places of residence and names are mentioned, asking them for protection against enemies. Written in rencong script on eight strips of bamboo. The strips are not numbered; their order could not be ascertained. Four strips (A-D) are threaded on a piece of string through holes on their left ends; the other four (E-H) have no holes. It is uncertain whether these two sets belong together, but there is no difference in script and subject. C has 1and a half lines of writing, H has 3, the others have 2 lines each. A 57 x 2.1 cm; B 48.5 x 2.1 cm; C 49.8 X 1.8 cm; D 39 X 2.2 cm; E 45.5 x 2.3 cm; F 41 x 2.8 cm; G 39.3 x 2-5 cm; H45.8 X 2.7 cm.
