This drawing of the inscription on the lid of the Simon ossuary supports the identification of this ossuary as that of Simon of Cyrene’s son. The first line spells “of Alexander” in Greek; the second line, in smaller Hebrew characters, reads “Alexander QRNYT.” The meaning of qrnyt is unclear, but it is possible the engraver made a slight error, and meant instead to write qrnyh—Hebrew for “Cyrenian.”
