Inscribed marble plaque

Roman, Cypriot

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171

The Greek inscription, although fragmentary, is sufficient to provide enough of the sense and the poetic tone of the epitaph. It records the burial place of a certain Bacchi(o)s who had enjoyed a successful career as either a butcher or a chef.
