39. Claudia. Rome, 2nd century B.C. (ILLRP 973=ILS 8403=CLE 52=CIL I2.1211=CIL VI.15346. Tr. R. Lattimore. L)

Friend, I have not much to say; stop and read it. This tomb, which is not fair, is for a fair woman. Her parents gave her the name Claudia. She loved her husband in her heart. She bore two sons, one of whom she left on earth, the other beneath it. She was pleasant to talk with, and she walked with grace. She kept the house and worked in wool. That is all. You may go.
