*********************GIRSA SECTION*********************

We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, the Tzon Kodashim and the marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any other important corrections that Acharonim have pointed out in the Gemara, Rashi and Tosfos.

[1] Gemara 21b [line 11]:

The words "Shaveh Shnei Dinarin" שוה שני דינרין

should be "Shaveh Shnei Shnei Dinarin" שוה שני שני דינרין (Tosfos DH Kegon)

[2] Gemara [line 14]:

Should be corrected as suggested by Shitah Mekubetzes #4; this is the Girsa of Rashi in his Lishna Kama לישנא קמא. The Lishna Acharina לישנא אחרינא of Rashi is the Girsa printed in our Gemara. There is no Halachic difference between the two.

[3] Rashi 21b DH v'Hevi b'Sheloshah ד"ה והביא בשלשה:

The words "b'Sheloshah Dinrei Chesef" בשלשה דינרי כסף

should be "b'Sheloshah Sil'ei Chesef" בשלשה סלעי כסף (RASHASH; this is also the way it appears in Tosfos DH Kegon כגון; see below, entry #8)

[4] Rashi DH Amri Hacha Kegon ד"ה אמרי הכא כגון:

The words "b'Sheloshah Dinerei Chesef" בשלשה דינרי כסף

should be "b'Sheloshah Sil'ei Chesef" בשלשה סלעי כסף (as in the previous Girsa entry)

[5] Rashi DH deka'Tani u'Modeh ד"ה דקתני ומודה:

The words "Havis Maisis ... d'Havu Mozlei" הוית מייתית ... דהוו מוזלי

should be "v'Havis Maisis ... Havu Mozlei" והוית מייתית ... הוו מוזלי
