“Long live the Good God, Who makes a memorial in Behdet (Apollinopolis Megale), constructs the Great Seat of Horakhty, completes the Sanctuary of the Holy Winged Orb, and adorns the Mansion of Horus of the Horus-Gods, He the King of Upper and Lower Egypt “Heir of the Beneficent God and of the Goddess Who loves Her Mother the Saviour Goddess, Chosen of Ptah Justiciar of Ra Living Image of Amon”(the King Ptolemy VIII Soter II and the Queen Kleopatra III).
The Great Seat of Ra is built to perfection, the Temple is noble with girdle-wall on all four sides thereof, which “He Who is South of His Wall”(the God Ptah) has fashioned and the Creator Gods have created.

Long live the Good God, Who fashions a memorial in Mesen (Apollinopolis Megale), brightens the Great Seat with His beauty, constructs the “Mansion of the Falcon”(one of the names of the Temple of Horus at Behdet) of the Golden Falcon, and confers benefactions on the Lord of the Sky, He, the Son of Ra, Ptolemaeus may He live for ever, Beloved of Ptah, given life”.
