What do these letters mean?

““M‘SH W”  

in the following mishnah?

Is this a typo?

D. Said R. Yose, “M‘SH W: Arsela led it out, and he was an Israelite.”

(Yoma 6:3 The Mishnah: A New Translation)


The hebrew of the mishnah states:

מעשה והולכו ערסלא

‏ כִּ֤י לֶ֣קַח ט֭וֹב נָתַ֣תִּי לָכֶ֑ם תּֽ֝וֹרָתִ֗י אַֽל־תַּעֲזֹֽבוּ׃

If you search Neusner for M SH (replacing the ayin symbol with a space) you will see the pattern: he transliterates the word and the first letter of the next word, to indicate the start of a story or illustration.
