Farewell, my dear children. Farewell, Priscus Nemonianus, fifteen years old. May Osiris give the cold water to you and to your sister who was carried off within the space of one hour with you. And you, Isidora, seven years old, farewell. May Osiris give the cold water to you and your brother who was carried off within the space of one hour with you. May the earth be light for you, and may those things she grants you below be good.
