The tombstone of an unknown soldier (the section with his name is missing), serving as an Optio awaiting promotion to Centurion. He died in a shipwreck; the inscription contains a space for "h(ic)" (here) to be added if his body was recovered. Evidently, it never was.

A scene from Trajan's Column in showing soldiers treating their injured comrades after battle, helping them from the field & bandaging their wounds - one soldier seeming to grimace in pain as his leg was treated.
