Yes, those are superior readings to mine.

I can see a distinct horizontal stroke which lies immediately beneath
the l and immediately above the end of the tail of the 'g'. I have no
authority for treating this as an 'i' however. I wonder now whether
this is in fact a mark of deletion, so that we should read 'baig'?
