The Bactrian document edited here, which was written in A.D. 662/663 in Gozgan, is an “undertaking to keep the peace,” intended to bring to an end a quarrel between two families. In addition to the Bactrian text and English translation, the article contains a brief commentary on some points of historical or linguistic interest.
