Norman (GD II p. 388) suggests reading [n] atth' m.c. which would correct the metre.19

ĕvam-eva tvam-pi If we count the initial syllable here as short, it could be taken as resolved. We would then need to count tv as not making position; in the next line however tv does appear to make position. It might be better to read evaṁ tuvam-pi, which would give a normal opening.31 pamuñcassu saddhaṁ,

gamissasi tvaṁ Thai places tvaṁ in brackets, which fails to correct the metre; it looks like Piṅgiya has been inserted by the recitor to clarify the context, if that is so then we have an extended Tuṭṭhubha line. I do not understand why Norman states (GD II p. 390) that tv in tvaṁ fails to make position here, as that would go against the normal opening.32 Piṅgiya Maccudheyyassa pāraṁ.” PTS, Sn: maccudheyyapāraṁ.33
