<p style='text-align: justify;'> The <i>Avadānaśataka</i> is an ancient collection of Buddhist legends, its first redaction dating to the first centuries of the CE. It was translated into Chinese and Tibetan during the first millennium CE, gaining large popularity across Asia. This Nepalese incomplete palm-leaf manuscript contains the almost complete text of the <i>Śibyāvadāna</i>, the thirty-fourth story, as well as the complete text of the <i>Surūpāvadāna</i>, the thirty-fifth story in the collection. Although the manuscript is incomplete, the last folio contains an abbreviated version of the <i>ye dharmā</i> formula, probably followed by the (badly damaged) beginning of the colophon. These five folios are part of a bundle of nine folios possibly from four different manuscripts, containing parts of five stories from the <i>Avadānaśataka</i>. They were used by Speyer for his edition of the <i>Avadānaśataka</i> and were given the siglum F. </p>
