(Statue of) Nepotianus. To Flavius Nepotianus, of perfectissimus rank, military commander ( comes ) and governor ( praeses ) of the province of Tripolitania. Exceptional in justice and integrity, outstanding in moderation and benignity, a cultivator of abstinence and honesty and of all duties, very experienced also in military affairs, incomparable in arms and in counsel. Because he increased the councils ( ordines ) and all the provincials with many benefits by administrating with benevolent loyalty; because he crushed the insolence of the barbarians with the use of military science; because he established defence and permanent protection for the borders, also for future times, fortified and secure from any hostile incursion; because he adorned the buildings of the cities both by restoration and by new building. The council ( ordo ) of the city of Lepcis Magna with the people ( populus ) set up a marble statue on account of these merits, with all decrees (= of the ordo) and votes (= of the people) in unison.
