Long Description:
The old city slaughter house directly near the Regnitz river has a big lying ox statue with the inscription
BOS PRIUS AC VITULUS PRIMAEVO NATUS AB ORTU, NASCENDI SOLITUM TRANSGREDIENDO MODUM.
ARTIFICIS MANUS, ILLA FUIT PERFUNCTA PARENTIS MUNERE, NON VITULUM, SED PARIENDO BOVEM
and a chronogram over the entrance, made of sandstone.

One of the "I" was lost due renovation, so the correct year is 1742.
Type of numerals used: Roman

Text of the original chronogram: SVb hVIatIs fabrICae eXtra=orDInarIe IMpensIs eXstrVCta

English translation of the chronogram: the local workshop was built at extraordinary expense

Pure chronogram?: yes

Natural chronogram?: no
