English translation

Translation by: Charlotte Roueché

. . . ?Procu]lus was responsible for the construction [ . . .


If a first century date could be accepted it would be tempting to connect the text with one of the Proculi known at Cyrene, probably M. Sufenas Proculus (C.9, C.118, C.225, C.437) rather than Q. Lucanius Proculus, see C.151, C.319, since the latter's name should have been followed by the title proconsul.
