English translation

Translation by:

Year 105, Monal[kes? . . .


Pandolfi's restoration is not acceptable, for the name Εὐρήμων would be written in an archaic alphabet wholly contradictory with the lettering observed on the photograph. The cutting looks more like some names cut by ephebes on equestrian reliefs in the gymnasium, hence our tentative reading, by Dobias-Lalou.
