[Panopolis], to Nephthys the sister goddess, to Anupu lord of Taser, to Amset,
Hapi, Tuautmutf and Kabhsenuf, who have given meals of bread and beer,
oxen, geese, wine, milk, incense, wax, clothes, utensils, all good and pure things
upon which a god lives, to the ... of Osiris Takhrotanbast, justified, daughter
of Har, justified, daughter of the lady of a house, Takhebu, justified for ever
and ever."
