|Plovdiv, Dedication to Basiliscus (EDCS-15000148)|
Hic est quem cernis equitum
consul patricius imperiiq(ue) parens
ipse triumphator (r)ediit nunc
victor ab orbe
gloria Romanis tu Basilisce
To Good Fortune.
He whom you see is the cavalry's
and the infantry's master,
consul, patrician, and father of the empire.
This man now returns triumphant,
victorious all over the world.
A glory to your Romans, Basiliscus, you are.
465 CE–468 CE
