Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 649


THE ACHAEANS DEDICATE A STATUE OF Q. MARCIUS PHILIPPUS AT OLYMPIA

Greek text:   IvO_318
Date:     169 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

In this inscription, the name has been erased and then over-written with the name of Philippus, the consul of 169 B.C.; no doubt the inscription was originally intended to be used for the statue of a previous Roman consul.


The league of Achaeans dedicated this statue of Quintus Marcius Philippus, the son of Lucius, the general and consul of the Romans, on account of his virtue and his nobleness towards themselves and the other Greeks.

Andreas and Aristomachos of Argos made the statue.
