Dp.A.193 is short for what?

"Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others. Thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed. - Dp.A.193"

Anyone know if this is Dhammapada-atthakatha (Commentary to the Dhammapada)? and if this compassion is karuna?

I'm pretty sure that yes... that is what is being referred to.
