a.They are alive.b. The sarcophagus and the moulded base and the [...] which have been prepared in the base were prepared and added by Marcus Aurelius Athenagoras son of Eudamos [son of Eudamos son of Eudamos] the son of Philon, for himself and his wife Aurelia Meltine, daughter of Dionysios, son of Athenagoras the son of Eupolemos and for their children [ .. ? .. ] after the burial of himself and his wife in the sarcophagus there shall be prepared by his children by Meltine: Eudamus and Athenagoras, a slab which shall cover those buried in it and so his children by Meltine, Eudamos and Athenagoras, when they are deaad, shall be buried on /above the slab. But I wish no-one else to be buried in the sarcophagus but that it be consecrated as a heroon. In the ??? below the moulded base of the sarcophagus there shall be buried Aureliae Meltine and Meltine my daughters, but no-one shall have the right to bury anyone else in the sarcophagus other than those whom I have wished or to take out those buried in it, since he is to be impious and accursed and a tomb-breaker and in addition is to pay to the most sacred treasury 2500 denarii of which the third will be the prperty of the prosecutor. A copy of this inscription was deposited in the Property-archive when Attalis Apphion, daughter of Menekrates was stephanephorus for the thirteenth time, in the month Apellaion.
