Plaque of marble with a Latin inscription.

For the welfare of our two emperors, Lucius Septimius Severus Pius Pertinax and Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Publius Septimius Geta, Caesar, the association of textile workers (collegium centonariorum) built a meeting hall (schola) with pediment (i.e. triangular top) with their own money. Lucius Pomponius Liberalis, consularius of the three Dacian provinces, dedicated this.
