Story:
  • On June 26, 2024, Christophe Vielle wrote an email to Dominik Wujastyk including the following provenance information: MS Chennai GOML R.2983 was "transcribed in 1919-1920 from a palmleaf manuscrit belonging to a Ayurvedic family of Trippunithura ("M.R.Ry. Vaidyan Vāryar, Tirappanattura") and the same family had still the manuscript when the "Trippūṇittura V - List of mss. belonging to Âyurvedavidvān T. Kunchu Varier" was made for the NCC sometime after 1937 (cf. the "Handlist of Uzhuttaria Varier reconstructed from entries in NCC" made by Dominik in 2020). This palmleaf ms., having the number 4 in this private collection, remains now untraced. "
