x+1 I perform the blessings of Eschnompmetis,
x+2 the high priest, before Osiris, Horus, Isis (and)
x+3 the gods of Abydos NOTE. They may grant
x+4 that you are exalted among the praised ones of Chnoum,
x+5 the great god. Thus has sent to me Parates (A) NOTE, son of Payris
x+6 concerning the 4 5/6 silver kite: ‘Thus has spoken
x+7 Parates (B), son of Inaros: I have given them (scil. the money) to
x+8 Parates (C), son of Eskasothes, (in) your name.
x+9 There is no money which
x+10 Parates (B), son of Inaros, would have given to me (in) the name
x+11 of Parates (A), son of Payris. There is no
x+12 money which he would have given (to me), precisely nothing!
x+13 Osiris, the great god, may cause me to stand
x+14 before the high priest without blemish.
x+15 Written in the 24th regnal year, 6th of Pachons.
