This memorial inscription from the late Sasanian period is placed in the victory relief of Šāpūr I against the Romans (Bēšapūr II). The inscription is between the horse of Šāpūr and the Roman figure. The only person who has deciphered the inscription is MacKenzie, although Henning had noticed the inscription. The name of the author is not clear, but based on the sigillographic evidence, MacKenzie reads the name as Māh-Ādur-Šīz.
