1-7 - The men (?) started irrigation work (?) on the watercourses, the watercourses and dug and cleaned them out thoroughly . These bandits and brigands applied their hoes to levelling the desert completely. As for their men and their women the road (?) : the man among them goes wherever he pleases, the woman among them the woman , holding a spindle and hair clasp in her hand, goes (?) going the way of her choice. In the vastness of the desert they set up they knock up animal pens, and after setting up their tents and camps they lie in (?) green meadows in their (?) tents and camps , their workers and agricultural labourers spend the day together on the fields.
8-14 - I have not neglected the instructions of my lord Culgi: both at night and in the noonday heat I my neck; I the workload (?) concerned. Since his childhood, Apillaca has has not . A man such as he knows my heart, as your eyes know have seen . My lord, with the open eye of a god, to (?) an evildoer you (?) know the evildoer . While the great official of all the foreign lands surpasses , my lord, you (?) surpass all great things, an equal.
15-20 - The report is returned (?) ; Whatever statements have been made , your matter is an important matter, and your affairs are great affairs. His pleasant words are in your heart, . They (?) are the people. Your eyes . How could I bear a grudge? I am securing the foundations of the province, and making it obedient. My lord, no king can rival you; let your heart be glad!
