You would expect inscriptions of this type, regulating the transportation prices and methods as well as exceptions, to be technical and to use repetitive standard formula, but here the provincial governor seems to be really sick of the people of Sagalassos he addresses, and he pushes the diction to express this sentiment as far as he can in such an official document. People are disrespectful (iniquissimi) of what has been decided and force the governor to set restrictions worste than those of the Emperor.
