A large Latin inscription commemorating the repairs of the temple of Apollo by the Emperor Domitian (r. A.D. 81–96) in A.D. 84.

Translation:  "The Emperor Caesar Domitianus, son of the divine Vespasian, Augustus Germanicus, Chief Priest, three times holder of tribunician power, father of the fatherland, hailed Imperator seven times, consul ten times, designated consul eleven times, repaired the temple of Apollo at his own expense."  (from the museum display at Delphi)
