The association (collegium) of builders (fabri) and those belonging to it donated this temple dedicated to Neptune and Minerva from their own resources, for the welfare of the Divine Family, by the authority of Tiberius Claudius Cogidubnus, king of Magna Britannia. Pudens son of Pudentinus donated the piece of ground.
