T.474. Funerary inscription

Description: Rock-cut tomb inscribed on the façade, which is much damaged, with T.472, T.473 and T.474.
Text: Pacho drew this text with T.473, and to the left of T.475 and T.476. In this position only a gabled panel is now visible, the rectangle sunk, the gable outlined in relief, on which nothing is visible except three large letters, PIN, lightly cut near the bottom - perhaps a modern graffito.
Letters: No measurements; L with a dot for ἔτους, ? ἐτῶν.

Date: Probably first century CE

Findspot: Taucheira: Quarry East XV, south side; first recorded in 1825.
Original location: Findspot.
Last recorded location: Findspot (1825)
