Aelian [writes]: "and displayed below the stone even now is an image of Theopompos [made] of Parian marble,[1] the inscription agreeing as to his name and that of his father [...], and the representation of what is happening is very clear. [There is] a bed, itself also of marble."
Greek Original:
Παρίας λίθου: Αἰλιανός: δείκνυται καὶ νῦν ὑπὸ λίθῳ Θεοπόμπου, πατρόθεν ὁμολογοῦντος αὐτὸν τοῦ ἐπιγράμματος, εἴδωλον Παρίας λίθου, καὶ ἔστι τὸ ἴνδαλμα τοῦ πάθους μάλα ἐναργές, κλίνη, καὶ αὐτὴ λίθου.
The headword phrase, in the genitive case, is evidently extracted from the quotation given: Aelian, Varia Historia fr. 102 Domingo-Forasté (99 Hercher). See theta 171, with notes and bibliography.
[1] cf. pi 644.
