MAQỊ-ESẸ/̣Ạ ṂẠQ̣I ḌOMANE/QI

Translation

Commentary

The personal names in this inscription do not seem to be attested elsewhere. As noted above DOMANEQI could be an error for DOMANENI.

This is one of the inscriptions listed by McManus (1991, 94-5) in which apocope (loss of final consonants or syllables) begins to show itself (MAQI-ESEA (earlier -IAS). If the reading is accurate, it may be dated to the first half of the sixth century (McManus 1991, 97).
