Annotations to James Joyce's Ulysses/Lotus Eaters/078
I. N. R. I. (Latin) Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum (Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews). According to John 19:19, this was the inscription Pilate wrote and placed on Christ's cross. The original Greek form is ιησους ο ναζωραιος ο βασιλευς των ιουδαιων (Iēsous ho Nazōraios ho Basileus tōn Ioudaiōn). According to John 19:20, the inscription was written in Hebrew (which probably means Aramaic), Latin and Greek.
