Hob Uid: 23666
Location :

Grid Ref : NZ2200015000

CIL vii 420. LS 725. Gale Ant. It. 49 with pl. Thoresby Ducatus
Leodiensis (1715) 556, pl. facing p. 568 fig. 4. Horsley 296, Durh.

D(eo) M(arti) Condati Attonius Quintianus men(sor) euoc(atus)
imp(eratum) ex ius(su) sol(uit) l(ibens) a(nimo)

'To the god Mars Condates, Attonius Quintianus, surveyor, euocatus,
gladly fulfilled the command by order.'

5. MENEXCCIMP Gale, Thoresby, Hors.; MENEVOC IMP Hirsch. conj. EX CC
recorded by Gale, Thoresby, and Horsley, would mean ex ducenario,
an officer earning 200,000 sesterces, as Mommsen suggested to
Huebner. But this is unusually high pay for a mensor, who was often
principalis and sometimes euocatus. For euocatus Augusti
mensor see CIL iii 586 (ILS 5947a). Accordingly, Hirschfeld Kleine
Schriften 635 n. 3 and Fabricius PW s.v. mensor propose the
emendation to EVOC.

As euocatus imp(eratoris) does not appear to be
found, it seems necessary to interpret this as imp(eratum) . . .
sol(uit); cf. RIB 2091 (Birrens) R. P. W.
6. EX IVS SOL LXA Gale, Hors.; EX IVSSO LL[M] Hueb.
For Mars Condates see RIB 731 and 1045. For euocatus see Index 6.
