katana

, n. [verb, noun < √kad ?; cf. sa. kadana;
EWA-1 s.v.], harm, injury; na vāham etaṁ jānāmi na
pi me koci saṁsati yam me tvaṁ samma akkhāsi
Sākhena ~aṁ (v.l. kataṁ na, kaḍhanaṁ, kantaṁ; Be
kāraṇaṁ) kataṁ, Ja IV 42,7* (= ākaḍḍhanavikaḍ-
ḍhanapothanakoṭṭanasaṁkhātaṁ ~aṁ [v.l. kataṁ
na] katan ti attho, 42,15'); — Rem.: in spite of the fact
that Be reads
kāraṇa (a conjecture ?) and that the v.l.
kaḍhanaṁ might suggest reading kaṭhana (q.v.), there
is no cogent argument for rejecting the reading
