Momce i don'twant to be rude but can you post the article to say what it's about & the link as you have in future.
This is what i have found:
Samuil's Inscription represents the content found on the tombstone of Samuel of Bulgaria's parents ( X c. - 992-993) cited by several historians such as Fyodor Uspensky, Iordan Ivanov, and Nicholas Adontz. Тhe letters that appear in brackets are faded away, and have been reconstructed. This inscription, which was made by the order of Tsar Samuel, mentions his parents' names as well as his brother David.
The tombstone of Samuel's parents is currently stored at the Archaeological Museum in Sofia, Bulgaria. It was transported there from the village German, near lake Prespa in Greece in 1916. The dimensions of the tombstone are within the ranges: 130-125/67-52/10–7 cm.
The following is the French translation of the inscription by Adontz:
"Au nom du Père et du Fils et du Saint-Esprit, moi, Samuel, serviteur de Dieu, je fais mémoire de mon père, de ma mère et de mon frère sur ces croix. Voici les noms des défunts: Nicolas, serviteur de Dieu; Ripsimé et David. Écrit en l’an de la création 6501, indiction VI."
In English, translated from the French: "In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, I, Samuel, servant of God, made a memory of my father, of my mother and of my brother on these crosses. Here are the names of the deceased: Nikolas, servant of God, Ripsimia and David. Written in the year 6501 since the creation, indiction VI."
The year 6501 since the creation of the world corresponds to 992-993 CE.[1]
”Inscription dates 992-993 and Samuel is simply qualified there as servant of God, without any royal title. This cross-checking proves that in 993 Samuel was not still king, this in agreement with Asoghik and Yahya, who put his advent in 997 - 998, after the death of Roman”. In: Adontz, Nicolas. Etudes Armeno-Byzantines. Livraria Bertrand. Lisbonne, 1965, Pp. 347-407 (385)
