Long Description:
 
< DE >

Auf der östlichen Fassade des Stephansdoms befindet sich eine Steintafel (vermutlich ein Epitaph) mit einem lateinischen Text. Die ersten 10 Zeilen ergeben jeweils die Jahreszahl 1728. Die folgenden 4 Zeilen und der abschließende zweizeilige Text ergeben jeweils die Jahreszahl 1729. Da es offenbar schwierig war, die Texte in den Zeilen unterzubringen, sind die Abstände zwischen den Wörtern manchmal nicht klar zu erkennen. Die Inschrift lautet:

Leider ist es (für uns) unmöglich, den Text zu übersetzen. "antonIVs borMastInVs" bzw. "borMastIn antonIVs" ist offenbar der Name der Person, um die es geht. Es tauchen aber auch andere Vornamen auf, wie "IaCobVs" (Jakobus = Jakob) und "MarIa" (Maria). Vermutlich war die Person Arzt oder studierte Medizin. Wenn jemand in der Lage ist, diesen Text zu übersetzen, würde ich mich freuen, ihn hier einzufügen (selbstverständlich mit Quellenangabe).

On the eastern facade of St. Stephen's Cathedral is a stone tablet (probably an epitaph) with a Latin text. The first 10 lines each result in the year 1728. The following 4 lines and the concluding two-line text result in the year 1729. Since it was obviously difficult to accommodate the texts in the lines, the spaces between the words are sometimes not clearly visible. The inscription reads:

borMastIn CVbat hIC antonIVs, ante seD Vxor

Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to translate the text. "antonIVs borMastInVs" or "borMastIn antonIVs" is apparently the name of the person in charge. However, other first names appear, such as "IaCobVs" (Jakobus = Jacob) and "MarIa" (Maria = Mary). Presumably the person was a doctor or studied medicine. If someone is able to translate this text, I would be happy to insert it here (of course with a reference to the source).
