Our lords, the most unconquered and venerable and perpetual Augusti, Theodosius and Arcadius, victors over the whole globe, at the petition of the first-ranking citizens ( ad petitum primorum ) of the most noble city of Alexandria, ordered that a statue in civil dress ( civili habitu ) be set up and placed in a highly frequented site ( loco celeberrimo ) by the most distinguished men ( per clarissimos ) of the city of Alexandria, to Maternus Cynegius, a man of all virtues, born for exceptional praise and glory, promoted through all the grades of office in consideration of his merits, and praetorian prefect of the East, in order to perpetuate his fame.
