C(aio) Cuspio C(ai) f(ilio) f(ilio) Pansae,
pontifici, I̅I̅vir(o) i(ure) d(icundo),
ex d(ecreto) d(ecurionum) pec(unia) pub(lica).

To Caius Cuspius Pansa, son of Caius, pontifes, duumvir with judicial powers, according to the decree of decurions, at public expense.

.108 C. Cuspius C.f Pansa features in two inscriptions corresponding exactly to the two dedicatory inscriptions (X. 790, 859) which, in our discussion of C. Cuspius Pansa could be dated to the years shortly after 62444. C. Cuspius Pansa filius is referred to as duumvir, and it seems likely that his duumvirate could have been held in the previous decade.
