Title: Epigram from Steni - commentary (E66 in Voskos, 1997)
Description: The commentary of the epigram E65 (in Voskos, 1997), known as the inscription from the village of Steni, is composed of 2 pages. The text is on a stele of sandstone mutilated on three sides (left, right, bottom). It was found in the the village of Steni, Paphos, nearby the Church of Chrysolakournas (with residual clay on the back side, showing that was once walled), and it is now conserved in the Paphos Archaeological Museum. The inscription is very fragmentary and its interpretation is almost impossible, but from what survives it is possible to say that it is a grief for the deceased for the premature (?) death.
