anteprima
par meritum quicumq(ue) legis cognosce duorum
quis Damasus rector titulos post praemia reddit
Iudaicus populus Stephanum meliora monentem
perculerat saxis tulerat qui ex hoste tropaeum
martyrium primus rapuit levita fidelis
Tarsicium sanctum C(h)r(ist)i sacramenta gerentem
cum male sana manus premeret vulgare profanis
ipse animam potius voluit dimittere caesus
prodere quam canibus rabidis caelestia membra

A modern undated "mimetic" copy of the inscription is displayed in the atrium of St. Silvestro in Capite (Felle).
