[image ALT: A horizontal rectangular slab of stone, with a crack traversing it from top to bottom at a 30‑degree angle. It bears an inscription the text of which is given, translated and commented on a page linked to this one; it is the tombstone of Marcus Caecilius on the Via Appia near Rome.]

Found on the Appian Way,
now in the courtyard of the Tomb of Caecilia Metella.

Somewhat older Latin than usual should not stop you: read the inscription out loud.

(In fairness to you, since my photo is not perfect, I've slightly enhanced two letters.)
