'temporally fixing it back' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'onto a very early dynasty' is the wordplay.
'onto' says to put letters next to each other.
'a very early' becomes 'ti' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
