Telesô fille de Sosias.
Teleso daughter of Sosias.
Telesò figlia di Sosias.
Teleso might be sister of Philon (IGCyr024700): both bases, published together and very similar, should come from the same tomb.
The Thorns' probable attribution to the North Necropolis is due to the fact that the Italian archaeologists before World War II were mainly interested in this one.
