[Preliminary Entry] A prose translation of the Rāmāyan was made by Candarman Kāyath ibn Shrī Rām in 1097/1686. The work begins with eight bayts (verses). A Persian note on one manuscript wrongly ascribes the translation to Fayżī (Ethe 1903, no 1964). In addition to the manuscript listed below, Ethe notes a second copy in the Mackenzie Collection.
