Gravestone or tomb in- scriptions seemed to be quite common. History records the inscription on the tomb of Eurysaces, a wealthy baker, which translates into =Atistia was my wife; she was the best woman alive; of whose body the remains which are left are in this bread basket." Another inscription reads =To Adeodata, Meritorious Virgin, Who Rests Here In Peace, Her Christ Hav- ing Willed It So." Up to the time of Augus- tus, the Romans seemed to be mostly concerned about the tombs of their ancestors, altars for ancestor worship, and the safekeeping of the family relics. After visiting the great tombs of Egypt, Augustus, then about 35 years old, set about the task of building a beautiful mausoleum for himself. As an afterthought, he provided some extra space for the other members of his family, which were to follow. The tomb was completed and remained empty for about five years. The fickle finger of fate then pointed to young Marcel- lus, who became the tomb's first tenant. He was the one whose death was least expected and greatly lamented. Eleven years later, Marcus Agrippa became the second occupant. Octavia, the sister of Augustus was next, and then came Lucius, the young son of Agrippa. Caius, another young son of Agrippa, soon followed and Augustus himself who died an old and lonely man, became the tomb's last tenant. 18SUE: The Tomb of Cecelia Metela mmB JOIN THE PLASTIC BAG ORDINANCE TASK FORCE Chaired by City Councilor Matt O'Malley 1ST MEETING: Tuesday, September 13th 1:00 PM, Piemonte Room at Boston City Hall 2ND MEETING: Tuesday, October 4th 6:00 PM, Weld Hill Building at Arnold Arboretum 3RD MEETING: Tuesday, October 25th 1:00 PM; Piemonte Room at Boston City Hall Join residents, advocates, business owners, and City officials for a conversation on plastic bag litter and help develop recommendations for the Mayor and City Council to be delivered on Wednesday, November 2=d. CITY COUNCIL APPROVES LETTER GRADING FOR LOCAL EATERIES Soon you l be able to check whether your favorite food trucks and restaurants are the straight A establishments you deserve. That's because the Boston City Council recently approved an ordi- nance allowing the City to issue letter grades {A, B, and C) to publicly rate food safety practices. Once regulations are finalized, officials from the Inspectional Services Department will reach out to restaurateurs to explain the new rules and provide educational materials on best prac- tices to remainin compliance. Inspectors will issue letter grades that can be found on the City website and, after a one-year voluntary display period, inside establishments themselves. The ordinance was reviewed by the CommAttee on Government Operations chaired by Councilor Michael Flaherty. Members of the City Council aimed to emulate successful rating systems used in other cities like New York and Los Angeles. And they hope that highly visible scorecards will help diners make informed decisions about where to bring their families for safe and healthy meals.
