Origin:
From the temple of Hercules Musarum at the Circus Flaminius, modern via de S. Ambrogio (1867).
Description:
The inscription is related to the consul that conquered Ambracia, in Epirus. The war booty that he brought back to Rome (187 BC) included a series of statues of deities such as Hercules and the Muses, to whom Fulvius Nobilior dedicated a temple in the Circus Flaminius. The sculptures became the devotional statues of the temple, a memento of this great military achievement.
