The article studies the most mysterious inscription carved on the watch tower in Belgorod-Dniestrovsk fortress. For 150 years the scholars have been arguing about its contents. The author suggests both her own interpretation of the inscription and a possible date it was made. Its first part was written  in Moldovan period by its military commander Stan (Stanciul) in 1452 after construction (re-construction) of one of the fortress’s walls, while its second part was made in the Ottoman period in 1603, probably after repairs or a reconstruction.
