Dear friends

The prazasti of PUrNabhadra's PaJcatantra gives the date of completion of
the text as

zarabANataraNivarSe ravikaravadi phAlgune tRtIyAyAm .

jIrNoddhAra ivAsau pratiSThito 'dhiSThito vibudhaiH .

half of PhAlguna of the year 1255', which corresponds to 17 January 1199 CE.

Could one of you good folk help me to analyse this piece of text word by

With thanks in advance
