I first encountered the text of the following inscription - from Roman Africa (Numidia) - in June 2007 in the Caerleon Museum. I have yet to consider it further.
VENARI avis LAVARI
LUDERE vas cum RIDERE
OCC EST ramus (?) VIVERE
Dessau (?) 08262 f.
Left margin, at ninety degrees to the text, from bottom to top: QVIEVER. Bottom right margin, upside down and right to left OCANAS.
