I snapped a picture of this cast-iron grave slab (with my iphone, hence the crap quality, tried clearing it up a bit) while visiting the cathedral at Strängnäs, Sweden.
There are two names and a date, all in a sort of flared, glyphic style I guess imitating stone carving, and below that text I honestly can't decipher due to the rusting. And at the very top there's another text, saying "MEMENTO MORI", in a style which, well, take a look:
Is this really from 1696?
