μνήμης ἕνεκα

“Zosime (built) this stele in memory of her (husband/brother?) Rhodan.”

Votive stele offered after the deceased: In the Ancient Hellenic tradition, some tombs were bought while the owners were still alive; the depictions and inscriptions would be applied before the tomb owner passed away.
