Editorial notes and bibliography
D.D.P. Kondi's text is synthesised with another by A.P. Boer in the text published by Lewis & Mandalangi, Hikayat Kerajaan Sikka.  Kondi's text was apparently compiled over many years.  The earlier parts deal with the past history of Sikka.  These include quotations from (probably) oral traditions in the form of Sikka verse.  The latermost parts are records of contemporary events.
Sikka words, many geographical names, and personal names of Posthouders have not been entered in the main index.  They may be found by referring to the word lists for this text.
