bibliography            

Although not stated in the inscription, this is most likely a common grave for the gladiators. Based on a copy by Peyssonnel acquired by Boeckh (no monument description recorded).

To good fortune!  The honor-loving family of gladiators belonging to Plotius Aurelius Gratus, Asiarch, and Julia Aurelia Asklepiodora, his wife and (10) high–priestess.

Translation by: Harland
