(Statue) of Hymetius. To ... Iulius Festus Hymetius, a man of clarissimus rank, governor of Tuscia and Umbria, urban praetor, consular governor of Campania with Samnium, vicar of the eternal city of Rome, proconsul of the province of Africa. On account of his distinguished services toward the Commonwealth; and because the desolation of hunger and neediness was driven away from the same province by planning and provisions; and because he occupied himself in that same province with chaste and honest affairs; because he did not lack in the recogniton of fairness or justice; because he restored the rigour of priests to the province so that now what had been before dreaded is sought after by plaintifs; because of such things this same province of Africa with decrees having been sent to the divine princes our lords, Valens, Gratian, and Valentinian, perpetual Augusti, believed that for him a gilded statue at Carthage and another gilded one at Rome should be demanded since for no proconsul or ex-proconsul before had it requested a statue to be set up. [On the left side] In the consulship of our lords Valens, for the fifth time, and Valentinian (II).
