1 Σάλβ̣ιος Σεμνὸς τὸ μνημεῖον
ἠγόρασεν καθαρὸν ἀπὸ πτω-
μάτων ἑαυτῷ καὶ τῇ συμβίῳ
Σοφῇ καὶ τέκνοις καὶ ἐγγόνοις
5 καὶ θρέμμασι· μηδενὸς ἔ[χ]ο̣ντος
ἑτέ[ρο]υ ἐξουσίαν πτῶμα ἀλλό-
τριον εἰσενενκ̣εῖν εἰς τὸ μνημεῖ-
ον ἢ ἀπαλλοτριῶσαι.  ἐὰν δέ τις
τολμήσει πωλῆσαι τὸ μνημεῖον
10 ἢ ἕτερον πτῶμα θεῖναι, ἀποδώσει
[—]? Ὁμηρείῳ [γε]ρ̣ο̣υ̣σ̣ί̣ᾳ̣ 𐆖̣ ͵β̣φ̣ʹ.  [—]
