Slab with a Latin inscription found on the eastern side of the market. (This is a new, improved reading of IEph 658). M. Cocceius Nerva (the great-grandfather of the emperor Nerva) was consul in 36 BCE (see PIR² C 1224).

The company (conventus) of Roman citizens engaged in business (negotiantur) in Ephesos set this up for M. Cocceius Nerva, consul.
