There are some inscriptions in Chinese, Tibetan, Tangut, Uighur and Mongolian preserved in Cave B465 at the Mogao Grottoes. Though these inscriptions have suffered damage from human activities and natural erosion over time, they are of unique significance for dating the caves, studying their evolution, and identifying the contents of murals found within. The author presents a collection of inscriptions from Cave B465 and discusses several important ones, putting forth several of his personal views as well.
