bibliography            

Found east of the town in the garden of Lovalaki. Although no association is mentioned here, this deceased shipper may well have belonged to a group of therapeutists such as those attested elsewhere.

Aurelius, shipper (nauklēros), servant (therapeutēs) of Asklepios, the god who loves humans.  These are the things being said to you: Whenever you die, you did not die, but your soul . . . (missing words). . .  to come back (or: retire), a vessel . . . (illegible and missing words) . . . you received on the journey . . . (missing line or lines).
