Fitzgerald: "Linestone block, 88.5 cm long by 61 cm wide, found built into an Arab wall in House VII, with an inscription in six lines, of which the letters are from 6 to 7.5 cm high.

-By means of the grant of divine

liberality at the in-

stance of Flavius Arsenius, the most illustrious,

the whole work of the wall

was renewed in the time of Flavius Leo,

the most honorable Archon, the first [or fourth] year of the indiction."
