Someone told me that's it's written on the tombstone of רבי אליעזר יוסף בן רבי יצחק הלוי לטרברג:

"הרבץ תורה ברבים ולמד וחזיר בעל פה למעלה מארבעת אלפים פעם מסכת ביצה וראש השנה"

Who is רבי אליעזר יוסף בן רבי יצחק הלוי לדרברג?

This is documented here. He was a store keeper who lived in Jerusalem who passed away in 1954. More on him here.

He is notable for the singular accomplishment of reviewing ראש השנה and ביצה over 4000 times.
