Copied by Cyriacus of Ancona (in 1444; no description available).

I, Aurelius Philippianos ☧ (Christian) made this for myself, for my wife Aurelia Dekniane ☧ (Christian), and for my father Aurelius Neophytos ☧ (Christian).  Now if anyone dares to bury another body in it, that person will pay 500 denarii to the brothers (adelphoi).
