The hieroglyphic text carved across the top reads from right to left;
Long live horus most powerful of souls.
Two honored personages flourishing of years:
Horus-of-Gold, divine of appearance, king of Upper and Lower Egypt, Maat-Ka-Ra, beloved of the living god Amon-Ra.
The seal-bearer of the king of Lower Egypt,
the steward of Amun, Senenmut, engendered of Ramose, justified and born of Hatnefret.
