NoteThe complete text consisted of 49 lines before the inscription was broken. Now only parts of lines 1-9, 14-16, 27-36 and 38-49 can be confirmed based on the five extant fragments. The text is mainly based on the reading of the original by Tsuguhito Takeuchi and published photographs. For illegible portions we follow the readings of Li and Coblin (1987).
