Apparatus
Letters in ligature:
2 ηρ, νε.
Apparatus:
The text of the inscription is given according to the edition of Mihailov with corrections after personal observation by N. Sharankov.
Lunate sigma.
1 The name Quintus written in full appears to be a single given name, and not a praenomen of a Roman citizen.
1 IGBulg reads the patronymic as Γερου-.
1-2 IGBulg restores [χαρισ]τήριον on l. 2, but there is no space for five missing letters on l. 2.
Commentary

The information about the monument and the images are courtesy of Vratsa Regional Museum of History, the content is further revised by Nicolay Sharankov.
