The texts include the funerary inscription for Alp Urungu, three Manichean hymns, legend about Zarathustra, the Stone of Chingis, and letter of the Kangxi Emperor.

Philology is a convenient term en-compassing also those aspects of epigraphy and literature which are relevant to the overall cultural-linguistic picture.
