ancien script

It's a funeral writing, i didn't uderstand but i saw some words, others of this forum will help you.

 

Here is what I understood :

IN NOMINE CRISTINA = In the name [of] Cristina,

EMORI APOSITA AB = [dead ?] (this writing) append from/by

UXORE ET A FI[L]I = wife and by [son]

SIV[L]IMA VIXIT ANNIS XIIII = ?? lived 14 years.

 

In [] what i am not sure and didn't understand. And () what is implicit.

 

There is a character that i don't understand in the third and fourth lines ; it seems to be a K but K is not a common letter in Latin, it is used only for foreign names. So, i thought to a L but too odd (or at least a greek L, lambda : λ) but it doesn't make sense. Finally, it seems just erased by the time...

 

Now you know at least that it's a commemorative writing to a poor teen...

I hope it helped !
