Equivalent in English

Ordered to be made of stone into stone constructions (temples) of: God Snake of the Mouth, the God of Aswan and our God in yours most respected (main) city of Egypt, yours most respected into all of the Sinai, yours most respected (the) greatest god Cho of Thnani; Ordered to be on stone embroidered (written) (with, using) the Supreme (High) Priests, the Alive Masters, and the end the Danai scripts in stone hard.


According to authors in [6], for the same sequence of signs, the English translation of the demotic text is the following:

And the Decree shall be written upon a tablet of hard stone in the writing of the words of the god, in the writing of letters (or, books) and in the writing of the Ionians, and they shall set it up in the first temples, [and] in the second temples, [and] in the third temples.


From the example of the content of the last line of the decree, which in all probability has the same content with the three texts, due to the different structure of the languages it is not possible to accept that those texts are totally identical.
