Short description of contents:
After an overview of the multilingual epigraphy of Daskyleion during the Achaemenid Period, the paper focuses on the closing formula shared by the Aramaic KAI 318 and the Old Phrygian B-07 epitaphs, which consists of a warning not to harm the funerary monument. Comparison of the two inscriptions sheds light on the cryptic Old Phrygian B-07, the sole Old Phrygian epitaph we know. As the result, the paper provides new Phrygian forms, like the possible first-person singular umno=tan ‘I adjure you’ and a new occurrence of the Phrygian god Ti- ‘Zeus’ together with a second possible occurrence of Devos ‘God’, equated to Bel and Nabu of the Aramaic inscription.
