Greek text:   IFayoum 3.205
Date: 51 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Somewhat surprisingly, Cleopatra is depicted on this stele as a male pharaoh; there is a photograph on the Louvre website.   The translation is by J.Tyldesley, "Cleopatra: Last Queen of Egypt", page 44 ( Google Books ).


For Queen Cleopatra Thea Philopator is dedicated the seat of the assocation of Isis Snonais, the president of which is the chief priest Onnophris. Year 1, Epeiph 1 {2 July 51 B.C.}.
