Arabic translation

[الآلهة. فترة كل من الداميرجوي فلان بن فلان وفلان بن فلان وفلان بن[..؟ ..] يس وكاهن أبوللو[..؟ ..] توس بن بوليتيموس،[المحصول] تم تقديره كالتالي: الشعير، [للمقدار الواحد، قيمة ما]؛ القمح، للمقدار الواحد، 2 دراخما؛ البقوليات، [للمقدار الواحد ، قيمة ما]؛ الزبيب، للمقدار الواحد، [قيمة ما؛ العنب]، المبكر، [مباع] بعقد مسبق، [للمقدار الواحد]، [..؟ ..].


The ending -τος is not sufficient to restore the priest's name at l. 6; several men named Polytimos are known for the fourth century B.C.

At line 4 the ending -ευς belongs to the father's name of the third damiergos, which should have a nominative in -ης. The length of this name cannot be determined because the line breaks do not coincide with word breaks.
