The tombstone of Swabowszky György

This is the tombstone of Swabowszky György, it was found in Szepestótfalu (Slovenská Ves) that can be found on the Upper Lands / Horná Zem / Felvidék, now it is in modern Slovakia. It is from 1597.

We can read a not very carefully curved inscription around it. The text in Latin is the next:

EGREGIVS ET NOBILIS D[OMI]NVS VALENTINVS SCHWABOWSKY ET DOMINA ANNA VXOR PARENTES MOESTISSIMI FILIO GEORGIO SCHWABOWSKY IVVENI STRENVO PIEQ[VE] MORTVO AETA[TIS] A[NNO] 32. A[NNO] SALV [TIS] 1597.
