Translation by: Joyce M. Reynolds

Not usefully translatable, although the praenomen Tiberius may have appeared in line 2, case unknown.


Line 2: Perhaps from Τιβέριος.

Line 3: Unless Σ began a word, the preceding letter can only be Α or Ο in view of the vacant space surviving at the top of the line.
