Title:   Grave Stone
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   The block is re-used and served originally perhaps as the plinth for a monument.
Its uninscribed face was scooped out in antiquity, apparently to lighten the stone. At either end of the left long edge is a cutting for a hook clamp, dating possibly from an intermediate use.
Latin Epitaph of George Watson (T 1810).
Six lines of the inscription preserved, and traces of two others above.
Hymettian marble.
Cf. Hesperia Suppl. 5 (1941), p. 5, fig. 1.
Context:   Found as cover slab of the 19th. century grave XXXIV, in the cella of the Hephaisteion.
