Roman epigraph 'Gens Numisia'
The epigraph is located in the atrium of the municipal building of the city of terracina, Italy
The inscription in Latin is:
P(ublius) Numisius P(ubli) f(ilius) Ouf(entina) Iacul[a IIvir] / iter(um) praef(ectus) pro IIv[iro] / P(ublius) Numisius P(ubli) f(ilius) Ouf(entina) Festus [—] / Pantuleia / P(ublius) Numisius P(ubli) l(ibertus) Ter[tius].
The epigraph shows the name of the freedman Publius Numisius Tertius of the gens Numisia. Before him two deceased, of free status belonging to the same gens, are mentioned. The first was Publius Numisius Iacula, son of Publius of the Oufentina tribe, and Publius Numisius Festus of the same tribe of Iacula (they were probably brothers because they have the same patronymic.) Tertius was perhaps freedman of their father). Iacula was twice duumvir (IIvir), and praefectus pro duumviro, that is to say he replaced one of the two duumvirs in office due to impediments of the latter or for other reasons. The inscription is incomplete in some points.
