This inscription is mentioned in Marie Joseph Lagrange, Saint Etienne et son sanctuaire a Jerusalem (1894), p. 128, and in Louis-Hugues Vincent, Jerusalem Nouvelle (1926), p. 778. Vincent also refers to it twice in his 1925 article in Revue Biblique, cited by Murphy-O’Connor. However, Vincent believed a second inscription was invented by the supporters of the Garden Tomb. He too failed to realize the inscription on which they were relying.
