Aphrodisius Corneliorum

Aphrodisius, probably of Greek origin, must have been a slave of the Cornelii.

of Aphrodisius Corneliorum

TNMP 165

Hector Corneliorum would be a slave or oriental freedman of some family of the gens Cornelia. He appears in an epigraph corresponding to the epitaph of his wife, a free woman of 37 years, which allows us to affirm that Hector at least at some point reached freedom. Therefore it is not necessary the restitution proposed by Tantimonaco: Cornelio(rum servus).

In Icosium (Algiers), an altar contains an extraordinarily similar text, which makes the proposal of restitution (servus) unnecessary.
