Help reading a Christian inscription spotted in Imma (near Antioch)

Filed under: news — PaulIversen @ 10:21

I was wondering if I could tap the collective help of the denizens of Current Epigraphy to read the photograph of a late-era inscription that my colleague Andrea De Giorgi will soon publish in Anatolica as a part of an article detailing a survey of Antioch’s territory. The inscription was spotted in Yeni Şehir (ancient Imma), which is a village that sits on the Antioch-Chalcis-Beorea road about 55 km east of Antioch. It was last seen in 1999 and this photograph is its only known record at this point.

I’ve got a preliminary text, but significant parts of the third and fifth lines have me stumped.
