Plaquette



Plaquette at the amphitheatre stating this amphitheatre (spectaculum) was a gift of the duumvir (twomenship, kind of mayors) of C. Quinctius Valgus and M. Porcius. It was not usance the habit not to be payed for this function, but they were expected to pay a lot out of their own pocket. (Like the organization of the shows).
