In Ogihara's edition of the Tocharian B so-called "Avadāna-Manuscript", a fragment from the Dhanika-Avadāna contains a word santse. On the basis of parallel texts, it is shown that santse means 'daughter-in-law'. This newly identified word is cognate with a.o. Greek νυός 'daughter-in-law' and derives from Proto-Indo- European *snusó-.
