bibliography            

Part of a slab of white marble with a bilingual epitaph in Phoenician and Greek (42.5 x 27.5 x 9.5 cm; letter height: 0.8 cm). Found at Naxos but originally from the island of Rheneia (see EBGR (2008), no. 99). There are six Phoenician characters in line 2, there is mention of Dioskourides in line 3 and there is reference to the "fellow society-members" (synthiasitai) in line 4.

Too fragmentary to translate.
