|The south face of the Vatican Obelisk|
|The inscription on the base of the north side of the obelisk|
|The Vatican obelisk from the northeast|
|The inscription on the west end of the base of the obelisk|
That inscription is the only encouraging inscription on the obelisk.
(Now, before you complain that you cannot read any of the inscriptions, I will point out that competence in Latin used to be required in order to get into college. As far as the Egyptian inscription, if you can't read it, I can't help you there.)
