English translation

Translation by: Editors

[---] father of the country, consul [---]


The stone was re-used as an uninscribed block in the entablature carrying P.148.

From an imperial title; the order of the items confirms the first century date suggested by the letter-forms. In fact by the second century pater patriae was regularly placed last in the list.
