Via dei Sepolcri near Porta Ercolano or Herculaneum Gate. Cippus of Suedius Clemens.

Found 16th August 1763, on the south of the street close to the entrance to HGW05, almost opposite to the circular seat of Mamia.

Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 3848.

The inscription reads

EX AVCTORITATE

IMP CAESARIS

VESPASIANI AVG

LOCA PVBLICA A PRIVATIS

POSSESSA T SVEDIVS CLEMENS

TRIBVNVS CAVSIS COGNITIS ET

MENSVRIS FACTIS REI

PVBLICAE POMPEIANORVM

RESTITVIT      [CIL X 1018]

 

According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de) this reads


Ex auctoritate

Imp(eratoris) Caesaris

Vespasiani Aug(usti)

loca publica a privatis

possessa T(itus) Suedius Clemens

tribunus causis cognitis et

mensuris factis rei

publicae Pompeianorum

restituit      [CIL X 1018]

 

By virtue of authority conferred upon him by the Emperor Vespasian Caesar Augustus,

Titus Suedius Clemens, tribune, having investigated the facts and taken measurements,

restored to the citizens of Pompeii public places illegally appropriated by private persons.

 

Similar Cippi were found at the Porta Marina, Porta Nocera and the Porta Vesuvio.

The wording “rei publicae Pompeianorum” on one of these, discovered in 1763, was the first positive identification that the site was Pompeii.

Until then scholars had divided opinions on the city buried under Civita. Many, including the first official excavators, thought it was the ancient city of Stabiae.
