Description:
A white marble block, tapering a little towards the top (width across faces a. and c., W. 0.45-0.43 × H. 2.80 × width across face b. W. 0.46-0.425). Surface smoothed on faces a., b., and c. but left roughly dressed on face d.
Text:
a., concentrated on upper part of stone, with fillet (W. c. 0.085 wide) down the left side and margin down the right. b., the text is arranged in two parts, separated by a sizable vacant area (H. 0.15 in height).
Letters:
a., letter-heights average 0.03 in ll. 1-5 and 0.02 thereafter; letters were apparently designed freehand, and include both angular and lunate epsilon and sigma (as well as lunate omega), alpha sometimes with a straight, sometimes with a dropped bar, and omicron frequently written small. Ligatured ΩΝ in l. 5; many abbreviations, most of them marked by a sign—superscript bar, lightning-bolt, s, c, or c (ll. 3-5, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 22)—or by raising the final inscribed letter above the text (l. 10). Graffito at bottom of this face (col. ii), letters c. 0.06. b., letter-heights c. 0.02 throughout, cut between visible guidelines; they are also normally consistent in form, with lunate epsilon, sigma, and omega, although alpha appears both with straight and dropped bar. Some entried in a later hand, over erasures (ll. 15, 20, 32, 39, 48), or on the original surface (ll. 5, 8, 30, 58, 60-1). Abbreviations: downward-slanting line attached to rho at the end of l. 23, round dots after the last inscribed letters in ll. 26, 27, 41, a slanting stroke attached to one in the middle of l. 48, probably s in l. 32 and c at the end of l. 56. Stops in the form of small round dots or arrowheads, once a small circle (l. 53). Diaeresis marks, ll. 5, 10, 13, 14, 26-8, 43.
Date:
Early third century A.D. (Reynolds/Tannenbaum, lettering); fifth century A.D. (Chaniotis, nomenclature).
