Pañcamo 'dhyāyaḥ [viṣamavtta] In Vuttodaya the metres in this section are omitted, and a description of the Vaktra (Pāḷi: Vatta) metre is included instead. In may be stated here that the Vaktra metre is neither a Mātrāvtta nor a Viṣamavtta, and so is misplaced in both books. ChŚā places it at the beginning of the Vtta section, in the fifth chapter.01

Here the last 2 syllables at the end of each line are heavy, the rest are light. The other metres in this section are variations on this theme.

ChŚā lists 2 metres called Pratyāpīḍa, that have a different structure - the first of these has 2 heavy syllables at the beginning of the line, with the rest being light; the second has 2 heavy syllables at the beginning and at the end of the line, the rest again being light.
