Gan-la-yi-yi-dun-ben, the king of the country of Gu-ma-la-lang had departed on his return home. However, on reaching Fu-jian, he died of illness. Yang Shan, a secretary within the Ministry of Rites, was sent to offer the official sacrifices. The posthumous name "Kang-jing" was conferred upon the king. Officials were ordered to make arrangements for a grave and to bury him with the rites due to a king. It was ordered that the king's son La-bi inherit the position of king of the country of Gu-ma-la-lang, and lead his people in returning home. Paper money and silks were conferred upon him.
