De Verborum Significatu
Sextus Pompeius Festus
Statua est ludi eius, qui quondam fulmine ictus in Circo, sepultus est in Ianiculo. Cuius ossa postea ex prodigis, oraculorumque responsis senatus decreto intra Urbem relata in Volcanali, quod est supra Comitium obruta sunt; superque ea columna, cum ipsius effigie, posita est.
There is a statue of that player, who, struck by lightening in the Circus, was buried on the Janiculum. Afterwards his bones, because of omens and sayings of the oracles, were brought within the City by a decree of the senate and were buried in the Volcanal, which is above the Comitium. And on top of it this column, with his statue, was placed.
