Adama (?) the eparch of Nobadia and eikshil of Douksi to Abba Mena the orthodox bishop of Ibrim.

I greet your fathership. I say this to Mariankouda (too). I pay homage to [a lost name]. You, my son, leave for me both the land and the things you made. And what did you receive? For I gave it, in the office of the eparch. For, appearing and giving... give [lost object]… And so, going to give your things, give them to me. I greet the priest. Why does he not come and see, saying so (?) to your fathership? Come and see [lost object], the eparch saying so (?).
