English translation

Translation by: Editors

Caius Clodius Vestalis, son of Caius, [proconsul. . . ] was ?responsible.


Goodchild originally suggested that the block had fallen from the door of one of the tabernae behind the portico; Gasperini associates it tentatively with an arch over the entrance to the Agora at this point (Stucchi, Agora 231f.)

For Vestalis see the commentary on C.113.
