MonumentNote not published until 2013, very fragmentary, split in half. Room for cpf title, but no indication of whether or not it had one. Tončinić 2011 dates it to beyond 42 CE but gives no evidence, and suggests it is a Legio VII member, but it may also be Legio V or VIII, for find-site is unknown
