Tombstone 23 cm high, 54 cm wide. It is built into the facade of the house at Dr Ante Starčevića 6 street.

Since only a portion of the inscription has been preserved, we cannot decipher much of the written information, but we can read its purpose: Lucia Maxima erected a memorial to her most beloved late grandmother, Optata
