This article provides a new reading and interpretation of the Old Turkic Runic Script Text on the wooden rod from Khotan. Consisting of fifteen letters and a sign, this wooden rod has only been studied once before. Diverging spellings render the text difficult to read. The letters on the inscription differ in detail from those of the Second Turkic Khaganate. The article also contains explanations about specific terms.
