‘God of saint Kolthe (Kollouthos), may you have mercy on the soul of the blessed Mekarou. She has gone to rest on day eleven of (the month) Pashons in this fourth indiction.
Be so kind, pray for me, since I went being troubled, and God will forgive my miserable (ταλαίπωρος) soul on the day of the great judgment. Amen. So be it.’
