E is for Eboracum

Eboracum was the Roman name for York. This Roman tomb can be found in the Museum Gardens and the inscription notes:
To the spirits of the departed (and) to the good lady Aelia Severa, once the wife of Caecilius Rufus. She lived 27 years 9 months and 4 days. Caecilius Musicus his freedman placed (this monument). Translation courtesy of An Inventory of the Historical Monuments in City of York

  1. Sad she only lived that long. Wonder what she died from.

  2. Live were so short back then!

  3. No one else will be using this word for E :). Excellent!
