The envoy Ji Biao and others who had been sent by Zhan-ba Di-lai, the king of the country of Champa, offered tribute of elephants, gold and silver utensils and other products. Variegated silks, as appropriate, were conferred upon Ji Biao and the others. The Ministry of Rites was ordered to send the Eunuch Ma Bin to escort Ji Biao on his return journey and to take Imperial orders together with brocades and silk gauzes to confer upon their king.
