CIL X 4751 = CIL I2 720 = ILS 870 = ILLRP 351.
Capua, Provincial Museum of Campania, Lapidarium of Th. Mommsen
(Capua, Museo provinciale campano, Lapidario Mommsen).
L(ucio) Cornelio L(uci) [f(ilio)] / Sullae Feleici / imperatori / publice
To Lucius Cornelius Sulla Felix, son of Lucius, imperator, at public expense.
The inscription was evidently set before the end of 82 BCE, when Sulla was appointed dictator. Mommsen has dated the inscription to 83 BCE, but Sulla took the cognomen Felix (“The Fortunate”) only after the victory over the Marian party. When Sulla was occupying Campania, the citizens of Suessa surrendered among the first (App. BC. I. 85. 385).
