About the meaning of this lineen for the early Christianen4th century

AD, to which the tombstone is generally believed to be dated 2

togetherenbarrelend and meetenwritten by R. NOLLen 3. An investigation in

in this direction the well-known would be repeateden and therefore needs here

not starteden to becomeen. But what remains to be done 4 is an attempt at analysis

of the present to usenden Text. We haveen so to askenwhether the literaryen statement

the inscription has a certain value, whether it is original and dignifiedene

Expression of a linguistically educateden late antiquity understooden, or if

them one longen Incorporated a chain of formulaic and common vocabulary

willen can. With that in combinationenhang standen Feeling for language and ownenNessen

grammatical and syntactic structureento go intoen

will be; However, this must be taken into accountenthat an inscription almost

always stereotypical speechenmanureen and fortuneen underlyingen 5 and therefore

one of the modernen Reader attempted judgment that remains entirely objective.

3. Lament of the husbanden (Z4-9)

4. Reminder to the Lebenden (Z 10-12)

Line 2 is replaced by den Expression condita sepulcro introduced metrically: buried

in the grave. The formulation has a long tradition that extends down to the Homeric

καλύπτειν (hideen, veilen) goes back: there it's the heroesen,
