7-10: ‘She would mimic ... modest, shy, mine.’ On Latin epitaphs parents often record great pride in their child. This following youth’s parents obviously favoured the Epicurean doctrine which espoused the death of the soul along with the body: "By a wretched destiny here lies Antonius Severus Aquila without a soul. He lived 12 years and 6 months, who prayed that he should have provided these things for his parents, but untimely death ensured that the parents did this for their son. I loved my studies, was obedient to my teachers, observed the precepts of my parents, cultivated my friends, patrons, all good men, was ready in duty, but with destined time of life they brought too much grief." Corpus Inscriptionum Latinarum VI 12013.
