Syriac Inscription from Urfa (Ancient Edessa)

I'm a little late with this announcement, but it's still worth noting for you Syriac fans that a new inscription has been discovered at the site of ancient Edessa in southeastern Turkey.

The picture looks fairly readable, but I haven't looked at it closely enough to make out any words.

Roger Pearse's announcement has more details.
