The ear and the body should be cast for the second time, so there are four joints at the inner ear of the abdomen. The inscription has 7 lines and 59 words, repeating the text 1, which means “chasing” every day to honor his duties and fulfill his responsibilities. Therefore, the Emperor bestowed generous gifts, and “chasing” was cast into this device to praise the virtues of the Emperor, and to sacrifice to his ancestors and ancestors, so as to pray for a long life and peace.
