When the old basilica was mainly in ruin, deformed by collapse, so that it curtailed the area of the forum, and struck by divine... it burned in a fire, and when the place in a more fortunate era demanded better, the blemish of the debris was taken away, and a tripartite portico decorated by its own magnitude and by columns from Troas, from provincial labour and public expense made available by Laenatius Romulus, of perfectissimus rank, governor of the province, was completed and dedicated in the space of one year. And, as eternal memory, the same man of perfectissimus rank, with devoted spirit, set up a marble statue that was radiant by his divine spirit to our lord Constantine, most powerful victor, eternal Augustus. (The work was) overseen by Claudius Aurelius Generosus, of egregius rank, curator of the republic and of the most splendid ordo of the colony of Leptis Magna.
