Text:

Stranger, my message is short.
Stand by and read it through.

Here is the unlovely tomb of a lovely woman.
Her parents called her Claudia by name.
She loved her husband with all her heart.
She bore two sons;
of these she leaves one on earth;
the other she has placed under the earth.
She was charming in converse, yet gentle in bearing.
She kept house, she made wool.

That’s my last word.
Go your way.

- Ancient Roman Tomb Inscription, 135-120 B.C.
