VIII.7.20 Pompeii. May 2006. Large Theatre. Bronze letters set into the marble stone seating of the cavea. 
These possibly mark the place of his bisellium or double width seat of honour awarded for municipal services in provinces.
The inscription records the career of Marcus Holconius Rufus: 

M HOLCO - - NIO V F //UFO
II V I D - - QUINQUIENS
ITER QUINQ TRIB MIL A P
FLAMINI AUG PATR COLO D D

M(arco) Holconio M(arci) f(ilio) Rufo / IIv(iro) i(ure) d(icundo) quinquiens / iter(um) quinq(uennali) trib(uno) mil(itum) a p(opulo) / flamini Aug(usti) patr(ono) colo(niae) d(ecreto) d(ecurionum)     [CIL X 838]

Mau translates this as: 
Dedicated in accordance with a decree of the city council to Marcus Holconius Rufus the son of Marcus, five times duumvir with judiciary authority, twice quinquennial duumvir, military tribune by the choice of the people, priest of Augustus and patron of the colony. 
See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p.149).
