Also the fact that the first two thirds of the inscription are all just qualifiers for the actual info being communicated.

Like if you wrote a two paragraph memo with a monster header that takes up half the page.

This is a political advertisement on a construction project: the implication being “we paid for this so be grateful”.

The entire point is promoting the politicians, and the more important they are, the more names they have.

Like Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia airport, with a whole bunch of extra middle names.

The Roman equivalent of writing with size 18 font, double line spacing, and never abbreviating repeated terms.

Or in other words, how I reached my 2000 word count when doing my high school English study of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.

Is it just me or does the content of the inscription make this artifact somewhat trivial?

Yes. It reminds me of the proclamations that are read at ceremonies. Whereas . . . and whereas . . . and whereas. . .

Saying emperor is basically the same as saying Caesar, And that's added to the fact that they've appended the name of every mentor they've had onto their name. It's not mostly qualifiers, it's actually mostly names I think. Lol
