<p style='text-align: justify;'>A 19th-century copy of the <i>Dhātupāṭha</i>, the complete list of Sanskrit verbal roots attached to Pāṇini's grammar, the <i>Aṣṭādhyāyī</i>. The roots are divided into the ten classes (<i>gaṇa</i>s) of the present-tense system and accompanied by standardised meaning entries. In many cases they are also tagged with <i>anubandha</i>s, metalinguistic markers conveying grammatical information about the root's conjugation. Interspersed with the list are short remarks about features such as voice, accent, etc., related to a particular subset of roots. The <i>Dhātupāṭha</i> is traditionally attributed to Bhīmasena, who is said to have composed a commentary on it, now lost. He is mentioned in the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(34);return false;'>final rubric</a> as the author the <i>Dhātupāṭha</i>.</p>
