Limestone coffin (sarcophagus) located on the west side of the street in the northern necropolis.

This grave and the surrounding place belong to Aurelia Augusta, daughter of Zotikos.  In it she, her husband, Glykonianos also known as Hagnos, and their children will be buried.  But if anyone else is buried here, the violator will pay a fine of 300 denarii to the settlement (katoikia) of the Judeans who are settled in Hierapolis and 100 denarii to the one who found out about the violation.  A copy of this inscription was stored in the archive of the Judeans.
