The altars, memorials of paternal deeds of honour, which bear the gilded form of a statue above, indicate in writing, Olympius, that your race is truly the remains of golden stock. Resembling your forefathers, pursuing the trail of virtue, you never placed golden advantage first. Therefore the city for you has set up a marble rather than a gold likeness, just as worthy of your virtue.
