Pompeii Porta Nocera. Tomb 23OS. Three headless statues. May 2006.

Publius Vesonius Phileros I, to the left wearing a toga.

Vesonia is in the centre wearing a tunic and mantle.

Marcus Orfellius Faustus the ‘friend’ is to the right wearing a toga.

According to Cooley,

The woman in the centre is the deceased’s patron, Vesonia, daughter of Publius, whereas the

two men are the deceased Publius Vesonius Phileros together with his ‘friend’ Marcus Orfellius

Faustus.

According to Cooley, this translates as

 

Publius Vesonius Phileros, freedman of a woman, Augustalis, built this monument

for himself and his kin in his lifetime, for Vesonia daughter of Publius,

his patron, and for Marcus Orfellius Faustus, son of Marcus, his friend.      [AE (1986) 166a]

Pompeii Porta Nocera Tomb 23OS. Marble plaques with Latin inscriptions. May 2006.
According to Cooley, Vesonius erected the tomb during his lifetime and had to add Augustalis later on.
He had a life of ups and downs if we are to take seriously the message inscribed below, on the
Podium. This message is a curious variation on customary entreaties to a passer-by to stay
awhile in order to read an epitaph.

According to Cooley this translates as

Stranger, delay a brief while if it is not troublesome, and learn what to avoid.
This man whom I had hoped was my friend, I am forsaking: a case was maliciously
brought against me; I was charged and legal proceedings were
instituted; I give thanks to the gods and to my innocence, I was freed from
all distress. May neither the household gods nor the gods below receive the
one who misrepresented our affairs.      [AE (1964) 160]
