This is a very fragmentary source, with only the planets and triangle area preserved. It seems as though even when complete, it would have been a much-abbreviated version.
Not enough of the design remains for a schematic to be reconstructed.
The list gives an approximate layout for how the decans, deities, cluster labels (in transliteration), and decanal figures (in bold) are arranged. However, the only way of perceiving the complete layout and orthography of the labels is by consulting photographs or drawings.

The decan numbers and letters shown here are for the decan family AR1.
IP = inferior planet
Grey shading = damage
[ ] = damaged text
( ) = explanatory notes or additional material
The number of star symbols accompanying the decans is also omitted here, as it is often impossible to tell to which decan the symbols refer. EAT3 deals with star symbols in some detail.
