For the tomb see Bailey, art. cit.

Either one name (Ἀγησῖνος or Ἀνταγορησῖνος?) or name plus patronymic (Αἶνις or a related name followed by a form in -ωνος? Dobias-Lalou wonders whether B.62 should be read with this text to provide the funerary imprecation μὴ ἀνοίγῃς and the interdiction τίθεν (dialectal form of the infinitive) τινὰ ξένον.
