Inscription of two lions from Angera

TNMM 567

This marble base found in Angera in 1868 bears the inscription of two people who reached the degree of Leo.

Cautopati sac[r(um)] / M(arcus) Status Nig[er] / VI vir aug(ustalis) c(reatus) d(ecreto) d(ecurionum) [M(ediolanensium)] / leg(atus?) dend(rophorum) c(oloniae) A(ureliae?) A(ugustae?) M(ediolanii) / et C(aius) Valerius lulia[nus?] / leones leg(ati?) v(otum) s(olverunt) l(ibentes) m(erito).
Consecrated to Cautopates. Marcus Statius Niger, sevir Augustalis appointed by a decree of the town council and representative of the dendrophoroi of the colonia Aurelia Augusta Mediolanensium, and Caius Valerius Iulianus, both leones and representatives, fulfilled their vow willingly and deservedly.
