IG II(2) 11169: Epitaph of Dionysius

The following translation was made by Cal Wilson as part of an ancient Greek course at The Lawrenceville School in 2020-2021. It was reviewed by Krateros Project Manager Aaron Hershkowitz and Krateros Project Director Angelos Chaniotis.

On one hand, the earth covers your body here, Dionysius, on the other hand, the common overseer has your deathless spirit,

And you, dying, have left everlasting grief in remembrance of your affection to your mother and sisters and your friends,

And in turn, the two fatherlands cherished you, one by birth and one by customs, on account of your great prudence.
