Dittenberger suggested that this statue was erected at the same time as Flamininus was awarded proxeny by the city of Delphi ( Syll_585, line 116 ). It may have been impossible for the city to award these honours to Flamininus, before it was fully independent of the Aetolians. A statue head found at Delphi has been tentatively identified as a representation of Flamininus; see N.Spivey, "Greek Sculpture", page 264 ( Google Books, with photograph ).
[The city] of Delphi dedicated this statue of [Titus] Quinctius [of Rome, the son] of Titus, [to] Apollo, on account of his virtue [and his benefactions to] the city.
