“By the decision of the Senate the Consul Gaius Vibio Pansa Cetroniano, son of Gaius, was given a public burial”. The deceased is known to history books: consul of the year 43 A.D. and victim of the war of Modena against Marcus Antonius, along with his colleague Aulus Hirtius, consul in the same year. The information recorded on this slab and the place in which it was recovered – reused in an area near the tomb of Aulus Hirtius, identified below the Palazzo della Cancelleria with two stones in situ – confirm the accounts of the historians Livy and Valerius Massimus. According to both, the Senate decreed public burial in the Campius Martius, the area of Rome between the Capitol, the Quirinale, the Pincian Hill and the Tiber. In the Gallery (under Wall 37) there is also the plaster cast of one of the two tombstones of Hirtius.
