- Inscription: Ya ḵẖūd ṣaiqalī tū magar mihr anwarī/ ya kās ḥaiyāt ja dariya akhzari/ Rustam t̤ibyasan hama zar kulāh sari/ Bahram sū latan hama rā zīn afsari/ Dāra bam’arr ki sad Sikandari/ mihrab irāḥat? āz tu’st bi ṣad Sohrāb/ ḥaq rā agar ba-zīr shamshir chā maikashi/ marjān agri chā ḵẖūn-rez tu jā ḵẖanjarī. Oh helmet you are polished, you are like the bright sun,
oh you are the cup of life from sky.
You are a golden hat of head, pure like the character of Rustam
You are a diadem for everybody, like Bahram who was strength
If Dara is in the battle you will be barrier like Alexander (the Great)
There are hundred complaints to you because Sohrāb stayed at home (?)
Why you killed the justice?
If you are like Mars, you are more blood-shedding than the dagger.
