πολύτλας διος Ναθαν
- polýtlas dios Nathan (phonetic transcription)
- polytlas Zeus Nathan (in English)
Zeus is the Greek "Father of Gods" and Polytlas is one of the epithets used to describe Odysseus:
- Polytlas-- much-suffering; much-enduring; persistent
An approximate translation of "Persistent God Nathan" can be made from the inscription, although more accurately, it may be translated as "Much enduring divine Nathan."
