To me, a sinful and un- worthy servant of this Saint, Stefan Uroš the Third, by the mercy of God the king of all Serbian lands and the littoral, his prayers revealed this hidden sanctuary which was con- cealed in this place by the holy master and which was kept safe through all this time for me and my son, the young king.
i began building here the house of the Lord our God, my Pantocrator, and having built it, i decorated it with all splendors both internal and external, and i designated it to be an abbey, a coenobium for the monks, with the blessing of my master and Father [archbishop] Danilo and all the bishops and the entire Serbian Holy assembly. and i do- nated as much as i could to this holy shrine: villages and Vlach and arbanas katuns, books and holy crosses plated and gilded, with pearls and precious stones, and diverse beautiful icons, overlaid with gold and silver with all kinds of decorations, blessed sacred vessels, icon lamps and rypidia, O censers and candle holders, splendid vestments and stoles, epimanikia and table covers, curtains and cha- subles and robes, and all beauty to glorify the house of God and many other estates for feeding and clothing the church ministers, those in need and travellers, for the memory and remembrance of myself and my son and my parents and all my forefathers unto the ages, amen.
