On the same wall, but at the top of the zoccolo, under the representation of the two large elephants, was a graffito that Della Corte reproduced in facsimile –

 

Venustus is fu[3]in[3] Vibrio(?) l<e=I>one(?)[3] [CIL IV 8017]
The name Venustus, at the beginning of the inscription is fairly clear, whereas the rest was rather dubious.
