Inscription

Asian characters (The first character is a capital z with a line through the center. The second has a box with two lines underneath it, the bottom one larger than the first. There is a line that goes straight down the center of the box to the last line. There is a horizontal line in the box that crosses the other line. The next character looks like an upside down L with a box in the center. The next character looks similar to the symbol for Pi with a line crossing horizontally in the center.)
