Cassels in his 1955 publication only mentioned the presence of inscriptions. From his archive, the Thorns were able to recover a copy and a large scale photograph, which does not help much. They also were able to check the layout and reading of this inscription and of two others from the same tomb (see IGCyr122600 and IGCyr122700).
