Gan-la-yi-yi-dun-ben (Alt: Gan-yi-yi-dun-ben), the king of the country of Gu-ma-la-lang, advised that, although he had been chosen by the people within his country, he had not received the Court's orders. An Imperial proclamation was conferred upon him, enfeoffing him with his old title (舊號). He was also provided with a seal, headwear and a belt, ceremonial insignia, a horse with saddle, patterned fine silks, silk gauzes and sets of clothing made from silk interwoven with gold thread. A head-dress and robes were conferred upon the king's consort, while biao-li of variegated silks, as appropriate, were conferred upon the accompanying ministers and other.
