Zenon, son of Artemidoros, priest of Zeus of the Goneis. Odatis, daughter of Dionysios, wife of Zenon. his stone barrier, traveler, already confines the handsome son of Zenon, Zenobios. At twenty-five he descended to the house of Acheron, leaving here Lamo (?) his care-worn (?) wife. This man Persephone led down to the house of Hades, loving him for his beauty and handsomeness. But he left twin (?) griefs to his dear sisters, and to his unhappy mother tears and groans. Near (?) [to his mother, sc.] did his brothers lay him, a great grief, and bringing no small mourning to his city. But stop your journeying, stranger, moisten your eyes with tears, and speak a greeting to those below earth. (Jones)
