The Learned Antiquarians Puzzl'd (by an English Epitaph.)

Four puzzled antiquarians attempt to decipher an inscription carved on a stone; it reads: 'Beneath this stone reposeth...'. Numbered '13' upper right. From an album of caricatures published by Mary Darly dated January 1776. It seems that her husband Matthew made the plates.
