According to Della Corte, the building was not yet excavated.

However, it was assigned as belonging to Clodius Attalus, because of the two electoral programmes, found on the extreme edge of the façade.

In the second, Della Corte says Attalus is being reproached for not being active enough, of sleeping –

Clodius (rogat)      [CIL IV 3716]                Attale dormis      [CIL IV 3718]


According to Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby (See www.manfredclauss.de), these read –


Sabinum  d(uum)v(irum)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)

Clodius      [CIL IV 3716]

[L(ucium)]  Popidium  Secundum

aed(ilem)  o(ro)  v(os)  f(aciatis)  Attale  dormis     [CIL IV 3718]
