Here I lie, Delarkes, having paid the debt of life; light, which is much sweeter than death, I do not see, but I inhabit the house of Pluto and I sleep a bronze-like sleep. I lived for ?sixty-five (? the printed figures make no sense) years, in all wisdom, in teaching of the world, and in usefulness. All this [that you see] my pupils did, who built my tomb in order to advantage me, so that I may be known to all my friends, and, although buried in death, I may be talked of among the living [...] friends; ? no one is immortal.
