Sylloge Inscriptionum Graecarum: 680


A STATUE OF Q. METELLUS AT OLYMPIA

Greek text:   IvO_325
Date:   c. 143 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

Q.Metellus supressed the revolt of Andriskos in Macedonia, as praetor in 148 B.C.   He later defeated the Achaeans at Skarpheia, before returning to Rome to become consul in 143 B.C.   After the revolt was defeated, the Macedonians were formed into a Roman province.


Damon of Thessalonike in Macedonia, the son of Nikanor, dedicates this statue of Quintus Caecilius Metellus son of Quintus, the consul of the Romans, to Olympian Zeus,   on account of his virtue and the goodwill which he continually has towards Damon himself and his fatherland and the rest of the Macedonians and the other Greeks.
