Grave-sfefe on a roughly wrought slab of limestone, 0.50 m.
high, 0.41m. wide, 0.07 m. thick. Across the stone a band is
cut, lower and smoother than the rest of the surface, to receive
the inscription. The stone was found just north of the circular
room in the gymnasium and very near the surface. The letters
are 0.04 m. high and carefully cut, the ends of the strokes being

from the third century.
