Dionysos, you cared about me, Dion, when I was alive; both when I danced with the boys and carried the nectar of Bromios at the symposia. But now I set you up beside my tomb, so that even when I am dead and in my future existence, even then I might see you. (SEG:Ecit. 34.1266)

How elegant in it’s simplicity. Thank you for sharing this.
I think epigraphy is possibly the single most important field for understanding the interior life of the ancients, especially if you look at both public inscriptions and private letters.
