Masê the eparch of Nobadia and domestikos of Pachoras and eikshil to Dauti the thel() of Kaktine.
I greet you. God is good to you. You will have it. Since I take the receipts (?) with Pappajja’s son, traveling downstream, return to town, and give to yourself your belongings. And when you bring yourself near, taking them at face-value, saying so (?), if you are silenced (?), coming up to the river, come to the Shut Gate. I pay homage to Eisakê.
