The inscription reads: This house was built for the use of Lamghouli the son of pilgrim chorister P'anos may God keep him from temptation and keep his loved ones and friends happy, in the year 1200 (1751 AD).
Armenian tiles with strong simple inscriptions without further decoration are extremely rare. One other example was formerly in the Hazarian collection, sold at Sotheby's in October 1987, while two further examples are in the church of the Holy Archangel, in the chapel of Saint Hrip'sime. A fragment a further example is in the American University of Beirut Archaeological Museum, (Carswell, John and Dowsett, C.J.F.: Kutahya Tiles and Pottery from the Armenian Cathedral of St. James, Jerusalem, Oxford, 1972, Vol.I, pp.62-64, 84-85 and 98, pls.34 and 43).
