This funerary plaque is unusual in that it has inscriptions in both Latin and Greek, each of which follows conventions appropriate to the respective language. It reads in Latin above: “Julia Donata, the freedwoman of Olympus, lies here” and in Greek below: “Good Ioulia Donata, the freedwoman of Olympos, farewell.”
