In 2007 a new inscription concerning Lycian customs has been partially published. Its date, as proposed by the editor and accepted until now (between 60 and 62/63 AD) can be discussed in the light of some prosopographical elements, as well as by comparing it to the already known lex portorii Asiae and to other pieces of evidence about Nero’s fiscal policy. Since prosopography can offer no discriminating features, this last comparison suggests an earlier dating, to the end of 50s, among other measures to counter abuse from publicani.
