Subject:Inscription on Stone Panel Translation Please
Posted By: James Tue, May 05, 2020 IP: 84.71.205.62

Hi,

Please could anyone help with translating what is written on this stone panel and give their opinion of the region of origin and possible age?

Thanks!

The engraved text clarifies the year AD 559 (大齊天保十... 10th Year of Daqi Tianbao....) and that this stone slab was donated by two bhikkunis (female monastics) ...etc.
A large number of these kind of stelae were unearthed from the ruins of the ancient city Wuyuan
(武垣)Suning County, Cangzhou, Hebei.

Let me not comment on the originality of the stele.

With regards,
I.Nagy
