Inscription: Arabic, between borders of Greek fret; translation: "To the owner of this, happiness, safety, a life long as a pigeon's cooing... prosperity until the day of resurrection and eternal prosperity... and long days".
Translation by Yassir al-Tabba (1978): "To its owner happiness, security and longevity as long as a pigeon coos. May he remain in the shadow of sovereignty achieving his purpose and I wish that his life will be long and glory unmarred by contempt and prosperity to the Day of Judgement and assurance on the prosperity for as long as you wish and ... along the days"
