Storage Treasures - Greek Stela of a 'good woman'



I recently was lucky enough to be doing some work in the storage room at the Egypt Centre and came across this lovely fragment of a Greek stela.  

It reads:

ARISA the daughter of AROSTOMENES a good woman who caused trouble to nobody. Farewell now. 55 years old. In the 28th year of the Emperor, on the 16th day of tner Month Pharmouthis'. 

Translated by Dr Kate Bosse Griffiths
