Translation by: Editors

. . . ]Tarquitianus (case unknown)


Although it may have come from a neighbouring building, the use of Latin is appropriate for the Augusteum.

No doubt the name of an official, probably a proconsul; senators of appropriate date known to have had this cognomen are P. Sextius Lippinus Tarquitianus, PIR2 S 667, and Sextius Tarquitianus, PIR2 S 678, both of the early first century CE
