To good fortune. Having wealth, you helped everyone, great-hearted Maximus, you who bear the blood of the golden generation. For you alone, with your wealth, rescued the men of your nurse (= his native town) from sorrows and misery. Since you suffered the heavily-onerous (tax) burden on behalf of all, giving from love of honour, and readily; therefore, honouring you greatly with a statue, we who lack wealth set you up, an object of emulation for good people.
