Hi everybody,
"Jesus: The Evidence" by Ian Wilson P.113
This contains a reproduction of a notice warning Gentiles on pain of death
to keep out of the Temple's inner precincts.Josephus says that these were
common and contained Greek and some Roman characters. 
It is written solely in Uncials with neither gaps between words nor
accents, and appears as five separate lines:
MHQENAAMOGENHEICPOREUECQAI
ENTOCTOYPERITOIERONTRU
FAKTOUKAIPERIBOLOUOCDAN
LHFQHAUTWIAITIOCECTAI
DIATOEXAKOLOUQEIN
QANATON

I think that C is our S.

If this is OK for the List then my question is :
Can anyone decipher and translate it?
Sincerely,
Eamonn White
