Observe again the omission of explanatory words in the Scythic version, as in Par. XI; we have here a Median city, apparently well known to the people who spoke this language, and which subsequently became the capital of the Parthian empire. In 1. 56 I render tit "tongue" in preference to "lips," because it looks more like a singular than a plural, and the addition of vas is shewn by the following word peri to be unnecessary or unusual in the plural: this is however nothing more than a guess.

The last line is quite unintelligible to me: it contains a character not found elsewhere, and another which I read kwe, found also in the independent Inscription III., where it constitutes a part of the same uncertain word kvcepoka, probably a participle; the meaning may be "confined."
