VII.7.32 Pompeii. October 2005. A view of the west side of the altar in front of the Temple of Apollo at Pompeii.

The inscription (visible just underneath the shadow) reads:

M. PORCIVS. M. F. L. SEXTILIVS L.F. CN. CORNELIVS. CN. F

A. CORNELIVS A. F. IIII. VIR(i). D(e). D(ecurionum). S(ententia). F(aciundum). LOCAR(unt)

According to Roger Ulrich, the use of the term quattuorviri (designated by the Roman numeral IIII) appears after the (re)foundation of Pompeii as a Roman colony for the veterans of Sulla in 80 BCE.

It thus sets a date limit after which the inscription was made.

The best known of the Pompeians named was M. Porcius, who was also a patron of the Theatrum Tectum (small covered theatre or Odeon) and the Amphitheatre.

The altar has a base of travertine, more expensive marble sides (imported from Greece?) and a table top of lava stones.

VII.7.32 Pompeii. May 2006. Altar inscription, written in Latin, saying 
M(arcus) Porcius M(arci) f(ilius) L(ucius) Sextilius L(uci) f(ilius) Cn(aeus) Cornelius Cn(aei) f(ilius) A(ulus) Cornelius A(uli) f(ilius) IIIIvir(i) d(e) d(ecurionum) s(ententia) f(aciundum) locar(unt)       [CIL X 800 (p 967) = CIL I 1631 (p 1014) = D 6354 = ILLRP 644]
Mau translates this as:
“Marcus Porcius the son of Marcus, Lucius Sextilius the son of Lucius, Gnaeus Cornelius the son of Gnaeus, and Aulus Cornelius the son of Aulus, the Board of Four, in accordance with the vote of the city council let the contract (for building this altar)”.
