Critically edited from palmleaf manuscripts in the Oriya script discovered by Durgamohan Bhattacharya and one Sarada Manuscripts. Paippalada Samhita of The Atharvaveda Vol 4 has abundant philosophical material and seems to have been relatively close to the common people. Its decline might have been related to that and the rise of the saunakiya-Samhita as the main text of the Atharvaveda. a mutilated and hugely corrupt birch-bark Sarada Script manuscript of the AVP had been known fromthe seventies of the nineteenth century.
