Metrical grave-epigram of Lykos
Metrical grave-epigram of Lykos, built into interior wall at monastery of Agioi Saranda (site L534). LS ii. 219, no. 12 and pl. 20 b. (reprinted in SEG 47. 370)
"Here Lykos lies with Pratousa, (his) bedf[e]llow. Three decades."
For synomeunos in funerary epigrams, see e.g. Anth. Gr. appendix: Carm. sep. 620, 644, 724, and in the dative nos 228, 339; IG xiv. 684; Inscr. Gr. Urbis Romae iii. 1352 (close to Anth. Gr. app. 228), 1358. Does 'three decades' perhaps refer to the length of their marriage?
