 Iamlikhos, Martianos, Marximos, Antinias,  Ebsaimēs, Ouasik, Marouer, I adjure you (f.s.), Tapkeh!  I adjure ⟨you⟩, Thapas! I adjure ⟨you⟩, Thapaoh, who are evil,  that you you go out of God’s creature!  The Lord said with his own mouth,  “You will not enter the creature!” If you are disobedient  to me, I shall seal your mouth with a bridle,  and I will place a bond (?) on your mouth, and I will send you to the deserts (?), yea, yea!
