A short, fragmentary Axumite inscription, found in Meroe and published by T. Hägg in 1984, can be compared with an already known inscription of an Axumite king in Meroe. Hägg's conclusions regarding both inscriptions are re-examined in this note. There is no proof that they belong to the same period or are connected with each other. In fact, there were at least two different Axumite incursions into Meroe, one before and the other after the introduction of Christianity into Ethiopia.
