Grave of Julius Julianus Prepared by the Brothers (III CE) Thessalonike - Macedonia

Thessalonike (Macedonia, Greece and Macedonia — Pleiades map), III CE
Denis Feissel, Recueil des inscriptions chrétiennes de Macédoine, du IIIe au VIe siècle (Paris: de Boccard, 1983), no. 117 = IG X, 2 1 607 = PHI 151517 = AGRW ID# 19837


The term "the brothers" here may be used fictively as a self-designation for an association of Christians (rather than for actual brothers of the deceased).

The brothers honored Julius Julianos the . . . most dear (?) . . . Christian.
