Inscription: Translation (by James Allen)
Regnal year 17 during the incarnation of the Horus of living birth,
the young god Kheperkare, alive forever. The possessor of Horus's
incarnation has given this stela as  a royal offering of Osiris,
the elder god, lord of Abydos, giving an invocation offering of
bread and beer, meat and poultry, linen and clothing, and every
good and pure thing  upon which a god lives, for the ka of
the revered steward Mentuwoser, born of Abihu, who says,
 I am a caretaker of the afflicted, a burier of the dead, who gives
things to him who has nothing.  I am a diligent subordinate in
the king's house, who is sent on missions because of decisive
character. I have acted as granary overseer during the counting of
 barley; I have acted as overseer of more than 3,000 people; I
have acted as overseer of cattle, overseer of  goats, overseer of
donkeys, overseer of sheep, overseer of pigs; I have directed clothing
to the treasury;  account has been taken by me in the king's
house, and I have been acclaimed and thanked.
I am generous with surplus  of food: there is no lack for one to
whom I give. I share the greater portion of meat with those who
sit  next to me. I am one beloved of his kindred, to whom his
family is attached. I have not hid my face from the one who is in
 servitude. I am a father to the orphan, a helper of widows. No
man has gone to sleep hungry  in my domain; I have hindered
no man from the ferry; I have cut down no man less powerful than I;
I have tolerated no  slanderer. I am one who talks according to
the style of officials, free of outmoded speech. I am a proper judge,
 who shows no partiality to the one who can give rewards.
I am wealthy, well supplied with fine things: there is nothing I
am missing in all my things.  I am an owner of cattle, with
many goats, an owner of donkeys, with many sheep. I am rich in
barley and emmer wheat, fine  in clothing: there is nothing
missing from all my wealth. I am well supplied with boats and
rich with vintage.
Now as for any people  among the living who hear this
stela, they will have to say, "It is true," and their children will
have to say to  their children, "It is true; there is no lie in
it." And as for any scribe who shall read this stela and any
people who shall approach it: as you love life and hate death,
 as you want Foremost of Westerners to bless you at his
terrace, you should say, "Bread and beer, meat and poultry,
offerings and provisions for the owner of this stela!"
