Abstract

It is an epigram inscribed on a circular tomb and found in Corfu (Korkyra) in 1843; at present, it is one of the most ancient funerary Greek epigrams. Its text, made of six hexameters, memorialises Menecrates, son of Tlasia of Oeantheia in the Ozolian Locris, who died far away from his homeland. The inscription employs an archaic alphabet that is typical of Corinth.
