Three fragments of a base of blue marble, likely a statue base. The merchants in the slave market also appear in IEph 646 (on this site). The name of the honoree is largely reconstructed. C. Sallustius Crispus Passienus was proconsul in 42-43 CE and consul for the second time in 44 CE (see IEph 716 and 3026; PIR¹ P 109).

. . . For C. Sallustius Crispus Passienus Equitius (?), proconsul, consul, praetor, (?) . . .  quaestor of Tiberius Caesar Augustus, member of the board of seven priests who arrange the banquets (septemviri epulones; i.e. at the city of Rome), member of the board of priests of Augustus (Augustales), and member of the Titian board of priests.  Those engaged in business in the slave-market (qui in statario negotiantur) set this up for their patron . . . (final two lines largely missing).
