Two Corinthian columns support an architrave crowned with a cornice garnished with antefixes. The inscription of the architrave identifies the deceased, a young man dressed in a gown, like Caius Julius Leo. It is therefore about a character who had obtained the right of city of one of the members of the people lulii, perhaps of Julius Caesar.
