Ephesos (Ionia, Asia Minor — Pleiades map), 100 CE
= PHI 249026
= ID# 8223
Block found in the market (agora) with a Latin inscription. T. Claudius Secundus is attested in several inscriptions from Ephesos (IEph 857, 1544, 1545). The term statarium = σταταρίον refers to a slave-market (cf. AGRW 124 = SEG 46 (1996), no. 1524 [Sardis]). Those who worked there either engaged in ad hoc honors together on more than one occasion or they formed an ongoing guild (see also IEph 3025 on this site).
Tiberius Claudius Secundus, messenger of the tribune (viatori tribunicio), reserve soldier (accensi velati), guard (?) (lictori curiato), and patron of the Ephesian citizens engaged in business in the slave-market (qui in statario negotiantur).
