Fragment of a stele-door, Middle of the 3rd century CE, Acmonia (Phrygia), western flank of the hill, Marble, Musée d'Art et d'Histoire (Musée du Cinquantenanire, Brussels, Belgium). Made with CapturingReality.

The remains of the frame of a tomb door with three crowns, Their presence is explained by the inscription. The owner of the tomb began his career with the archives and treasury of the state, was crowned agoranome and strategist by the council and the people (as indicated by the separate Brussels fragment). Lastly, the gerontia, the college of old men, awarded a crown to the deceased, for having built, beside the market of which he was formerly responsible, the public weighing site and bureau of weights and measures.
