Translated to English the writing of the wall art reads:
"In the Peloponnesian war, some Athenian generals once held a council of war.
The poet Sophocles, one of these generals, was first asked for his opinion of Nicias, the most distinguished among them, because he was the oldest."
"Sophocles replied: I am the oldest in years, but you are the oldest in merit and prestige."
The frame is structurally sound with no major damage or wear. There are minimal, age appropriate signs of wear and superficial scuffs.
