The reconstructed monumental tomb of Gaius Julius Aplinus Classicianus – a member of the aristocratic family from Gaul and the procurator of Roman Britain, which he became in 61 CE (after the transfer of Tacitus). In historical sources, Alpinus is portrayed as an efficient administrator who restored order in Britain after the suppression of Boudica’s rebellion.
As the inscription says, the monument was ordered to be built by Alpinus’s wife – Julia Pacata. The object is located in The British Museum.
