Leonid V., Epitaph of Onesimos the Son of Kallisthenes

This note analyses one of the Bosporan sepulchral inscriptions. The analysis suggests that the epitaph of Onesimos the son of Kallisthenes is a metric epigram cast in two iambic trimesters and not a prose inscription as has been previously believed.
