Gaius Iulius Verus Maximus, son of Emperor Maximinus Thrax, bears the title of Augustus, although he was officially only Caesar (proclaimed in the first months of AD 236). The authorities in Philippopolis probably flattered the imperial family, since they titled Maximus as Augustus in other inscriptions as well: AE 2006, 1247; AE 2006, 1248; AE 2006, 1251; and IGBulg 1374.
Titus Clodius Saturninus was probably the last governor of Thrace under Emperor Maximinus Thrax, because a milestone with his name was prepared but never used (AE 2006, 1251).
Marcus Aurelius Apollonides, son of Apollodorus, is attested as first archon of Philippopolis also in two inscriptions from Plovdiv - AE 2006, 1247 and AE 2006, 1248. The text of the latter is identical with this one, and AE 2006, 1247 differs only in the name of the provincial governor Simonius Iulianus. Aurelius Apollonides was also archpriest of Philippopolis according to an inscription from Hissar (IGBulg 1476).
We should mention the use of the verb ὑπερπαίω, attested only in some inscriptions from the territories of Philippopolis and Augusta Traiana dated to the second quarter of the III c. AD, always in the same formula (IGBulg 1510; IGBulg 1564; IGBulg 1565; IGBulg 1566; AE 2006, 1247; AE 2006, 1248). The city authorities, which erected these inscriptions, were probably trying to avoid accusations of dissipation in a period of economic crisis.
The use of inclined letters in Εὐτυχῶς on the last line reflects the practice of approving official documents with hand-written resolution by a higher official below the text (cf. IGBulg 5409).
