Believed to be from Leontopolis (Tell el-Moqdam), in the Nile Delta, this inscription records a dedication to Ptolemy IV Philpator and Arsinoe III of some buildings, perhaps an agricultural complex on sacred land. The inscription reads:
To the King Ptolemy and Queen Arsinoe,
divine lovers of their father,
the building (pyrgos) and its appurtenances (ta sunkuronta)
(are dedicated by) Horus son of Pharous, the priest.
