The most famous and one of the earliest inscriptions is the Aryanath I (Aryeztur I) inscription, written in pure gold carved on a 10 by 10 solid diamond cube in a lapis lazuli plaza in the center of Mahapur, know as the Mahainskription (Great Inscription) and is thought to have started the trend. It beings, famously:
I am the Lord of the Arya [Aryanath], first king, foundation king, rock of my people, king of kings, great king, emperofrir, lord of the seas and mountains, master of the deserts and forests, slayer of evil, friend of gods, upholder of righteousness, an upright man, just, merciful, river to his people. I have conquered the four corners of the world and am lord of the north, south, east, and west. I have established the great city [Mahapur] for my people, to be the center of the world, to be the pivot of the universe. I have established the great nation, the glorious empire, the noble state [Arya Rashtra, Aryasht] and this monument will bear inscription to that for all time.
