The cats were still playing among the broken columns and statuary in the courtyards, though there were fewer than last time. I was pleased to find this tombstone for a dog which I remembered from before
His owner has buried the dog Parthenope, that he played with, in gratitude for this happiness. (Mutual) love is rewarding, like the one for the dog: Having been a friend to my owner, I have deserved this grave:
Looking at this, find yourself a worthy friend who is both ready to love you while you are still alive and also will care for your body (when you die).
