Text constituted from
Transcription from previous mention (CDL).
Thorn-Thorn, 2009 Thorn, D.M., Thorn, J.C. (eds.), 2009, A Gazetteer of the Cyrene Necropolis from the original notebooks of John Cassels, Richard Tomlinson and James and Dorothy Thorn, Studia Archaeologica161, Roma - see in bibliography , p. 118 (no image).
The Thorns only give a description of the place and a diplomatic transcription of the preserved letters, with a suggestion about the date.
Names cut on sarcophagi are either at the nominative case, as a caption, or at the genitive, as owner's marks. So we might also have here a genitive, which would not be dialectal, ending in -ου.
