8. Then follows a cake on one potsherd for Surya. Now Surya, indeed, is yonder scorching (sun); it is he that governs all this (world), now by means of a good, now by a bad (king); he assigns its place to everything here, now under a good, now under a bad (king): “Now that I have obtained the victory, may he, in his pleasure, govern me through a good (king), may he assign to me a place under a good (king)!” thus he thinks; and for this reason there is a cake on one potsherd for Surya.
