An expanding collection of inscriptions, papyri, and other sources in translation (run by Philip A. Harland)

Grave (frag.) with Mention of Tanners (undated) Smyrna - Ionia

Smyrna (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), undated
ISmyrna 271 = PHI 255732 = AGRW ID# 10485


Fragment of a slab. Only the end of the grave inscription is preserved and makes reference to "the tanners" (bourseis) and to a fine payable to the sacred treasury of the city.

Too fragmentary to translate.
