The term “cowherd” is sometimes used for a member of an association devoted to the god Dionysos. The male name Apphys seems to be a Lydian name (e.g. TAM V.1 276, 351, 470a); Apphydis would be the female equivalent. Both likely derive from a term of endearment (apphys or appha) used among family members.
For Flavius Troilos Phokas, brother, and for Apphys, (female) cowherd (boukola), as a memorial for the worthy deceased. Farewell.
