I was asked one of those questions which I think I *should* have been able to answer by myself, but --am I just being lazy?-- it seems more reliable and quicker to ask the śiṣṭas:
What is the oldest RV MS? I'm guessing (!) that it should be in śarada, and I know that the oldest one in Pune is supposed to date to the 15th c. but I doubt that it just happens to be the oldest overall.
Thanks in advance! jonathan
