Re: musty monikers
In Response To: Re: musty monikers ()

For a Roman example please see my Latin post!

"IMP. CAESAR. DIVI. NERVAE. F
NERVA TRAIANVS. AVG. GERM
PONTIF MAXIMUS TRIB POT IIII
PATER PATRIAE COS III
MONTIBVUS EXCISIs ANCOniBVS
SVBLATiSVIAm Fecit

interpreted by Otto Benndorf to mean:

Emperor Nerva son of the divine Nerva, Nerva Traian, the Augustus, Germanicus, Pontifex Maximus, invested for the fourth time as Tribune, Consul for the third time, excavating mountain rocks and using wood beams has made this road. (Note: Italics mark parts of the inscription that have ben destroyed by time and were deduced from context)"
