(iv) Inscriptions on and Concerning Public Works1
Milestone? on the Ostian Road. Column of stone, c. 300 b.c.
11 Gaius Cincius, aedile of the plebs. Acceptably completed 1 by Quintus . . ., and Publius Cornelius.2
Contract by an aedile. Origin unknown. 3rd century b.c.
A curule 2 aedile of Velitrae let out by contract and likewise, as aedile of the plebs, acceptably completed the work.3
Public works at a place unknown, 171 b.c. Now lost.
Petro Remos, son of Petro, Titus Carpinius . . ., Titus Titulenos son of Vibius, overseers, superintended the construction of this work. Here were laid thresholds 3 . . . in the consulship of Gaius Cassius and Publius Licinius.4
Wall built by Servius Fulvius, consul, 135 b.c. On stone found at S. Angelo in a wall (probably dedicatory).
Servius Fulvius Flaccus, consul, son of Quintus, let out the making of this wall by contract out of spoils-money. 4
- 1‘to approve’ would be a convenient translation of ‘probare’; but this verb, as often used in inscriptions, takes after it an unexpressed dative case, and means ‘to make good to the satisfaction of’ some higher authority, by inspection of the work and by rendering accounts.
- 2an unusual title for an aedilis in a local Italian town.
- 3The signs which follow are obscure; they may mean pedes MC—eleven hundred feet of thresholds and sills; perhaps locata means ‘were let out by contract,’ and what follows might indicate the sum of money involved (cf. pp. 180–183, opera locata). Anyhow what does T after locata (see critical note) really represent?
- 4He subdued the Vardaei in Illyria.
