Marble votive inscription dedicated by Antonius, a libertus or freed slave. It commemorates the safe return of the emperor Septimius Severus (reigned 193-211), his wife Julia Domna and their children Caracalla and Geta. The names of Geta and Plautilla (Caracalla's wife) were erased after Geta's murder and Plautilla's execution following her implication in plots against Caracalla.
