Roman inscription on the grave reminiscing of girl Soteris who died at the age of six. The object dates to the 1st century CE.
Lo, under/behind this marker are placed the bones of Soteris;
she lies buried, devoured by pitiless death.
She had not yet filled up twice three years
when she was bidden to enter the house of black Dis.
The lamentations which the mother ought to have bequeathed to her daughter,
these the daughter suddenly bequeathed to her mother.
Soteris, "John Hopkins Archaeological Museum"
