The inscription reads:
"Hail passer-by! Callineicos, you have set sail to the limits of Lethe (forgottenness), having survived many fierce surges. Still the sea did not engulf you in its depths, (but) the earth has erased you from the face of the earth, you who wanted to take after your brother Calligonos, who has died long ago, from the face of the earth. The decision of the Moire was like this. Here lies Iulius Callineicos, Captian."
