Pakvataila (पक्वतैल).—(compare Pali telaṃ pakkaṃ, Dhp. comm. i.12.8, oil has been prepared, lit. cooked, sc. to be used as ointment), prepared oil (ointment?): te dāni °lena bhaga- vantaṃ nimantrayetsuḥ Mv iii.329.14. The corresp. Pali cpd. seems to be pāka-tela; e.g. Dhp. comm. iii.311.8—9 sata-pāka-telena, with oil a hundred times refined (Bur- lingame, HOS 30.105). Is -āk- here for -akk- by the Morengesetz ? The form to be expected is Pali pakka = pakva.
