Another triclinium from Palmyra, 3rd century AD. That is the text at the museum, I understand triclinium strictly is the name of the room where guests would recline on couches for dinner, what is obviously meant is: a group in such a room.
Many of the portraits are inscribed above the shoulder in Palmyrene-Aramaic with the name and genealogy of the deceased, and sometimes the date of death as well.
The original language of Palmyra was Aramaic (which later shifted to the Greek language); Palmyrene-Aramaic had two systems of writing: a monumental script and the one here, which is a Mesopotamian cursive.
