The 1st horizontal line calls the names of the Gods,  the 2nd line tells that these are gifts of the king to the gods, the 3rd line shows that all divinities receive incense (I), in the 4th line tells that all gods receive 3 different gifts (BMV), top down 3 round breads, 3 pieces of roasted meat, and one vessel each with 3 small pieces of meat. the last line shows in each case the formula "Words to say, 4x, by god N" (F).
