Dear Harry,
it isn't necessarily a typo as vocatives of this type can occasionally end
in long -ā instead of the regular short -a; for some possible reasons for
this see Debrunner and Wackernagel's Altindische Grammatik III §46b (1975,
p.96) (and perhaps check Klaus Strunk's book on pluti).
Best, Carmen Spiers (IFP Pondicherry/GREI Paris)
