Can Someone Help Me Read this Icon in Syriac?
« on: July 12, 2011, 09:47:20 PM »
Could someone read the Syriac writing on my icon of St Severus of Antioch? Obviously I don't expect people to be able to read the very tiny writing at the bottom, but the writing at the top is visible. I found the icon here.

Thanks in advance,
Severian

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Nice! Seriously, is there anything you don't know? I've learned so much history & geography from reading your posts.
