The inscription was found by Aspelin in 1888 on a slope two kilometres away from the river Tarlak, a tributary of Uyuk. The stone was transported to the Minusinsk Museum of Regional History in 1916 and catalogued under the number 20. It measures 183 x 33 centimetres.

  1. O sorrow! O my realm, o my consort, o my son, o my people! O my sorrow! I was in the age of sixty.
  2. My name was El Togan Totok. I was the ambassador for my heavenly realm. I was the ruler of the six alliances.

Comments

  1. Tekin (1964) was the first who has pointed out that the runiform letters <sIz> are to be read as äsiz 'alas'.
  2. Erdal (2002: 60) is of opinion that the word elči is better to understand as 'ruler'.
