Lord, help Kon[st]an[tinos].
I discovered the photograph of the inscription with a note about its findspot at the Photo Archive, Institute for History of Material Culture, Russian Academy of Sciences (II–36707; O.1320.47). We have no other information about it. At the bottom of the image we can see traces of another inscription. It is possible that both were located in one of the cave complexes of Inkerman, perhaps at the St. George Monastery.
On the formula, see Introduction IV.3.E.a.
