The gravestone, bearing a Greek inscription, is broken into three separate parts and has been determined to be 1,800-years-old by archaeologists. Examinations of the inscription on the stone indicate that it was placed for a woman who died in 213 A.D. Pempiopolis was the capital city of the Paflagonia state in this period.

The following is written on the gravestone: “I am Julia, your mother. I proudly remember you. I am Loullos, your son. You were loved by me in the sweetest way. You were called mother while you were alive, now you are dead. Your memory will never be forgotten.”
