"...a message...and they sent...they made peace for 30 years. The first of the agreed 11 chapters concern the territory. It should be from Debelt to Peramokastel and between the two Avrolev, and to the many small bridges, and between Valzina and Agathoniki, and to hebros, and to Constantia, and to makri Meadow, and to Hebrus, and to the Hemus mountain. Chapter Two concerns the Slavs that are subjected to the Emperor: they should stay where they were when the war started.

Chapter Four treats the Christians that were taken captive, as well as the captures..., while the turmars-es, the spataria-s and the comites: will give..., as for the poor soldiers - soul for soul.
