The shift in nomenclature seems to have occurred already some years earlier. 34 It is interesting that the family, in the sensitive period soon after 394, came to adopt a name that derives from the elder Flavian. Flavian’s career, even in the edited form reported in the rehabilitation, is extraordinarily distinguished. For most Roman senators in late antiquity the culmination of the life of public service would have been the urban prefecture.

Flavian is honored by the population of Lepcis Magna for his outstanding administration as an official acting vicem praefectorum praetorio, that is, as vicarius H I S TO RY A N D S I L E N C E ⅐ 16 (see below for discussion of the magistracy). This inscription has been carved on the reverse side of an earlier statue base (IRT 562), a dedication to a certain Flavius Archontius Nilus, who had been governor of Tripolitania around 355/360. This dedication had been erected ‘‘in the forum for the eternal memory of posterity’’ (lines 15 –17), yet it was reused to honor Flavian within about twenty years.
