Marble stone. Now in the Archaeological Civic Museum (MCA) in Bologna. This is one of the relatively few extant Latin inscriptions attesting to a formula resembling Paul's phrase, ἡ κατ’ οἶκον αὐτόν ἐκκλησία (Phlm 2; 1 Cor 16:19; Rom 16:5).

The association (collegium) of tentmakers that is from the imperial house of freedmen and slaves.

Ex domo Caesarum | libertor(um) et servor(um) | quod est collegi(um) | tabernac(u)lariorum
