Only two bases of monuments to Porphyrius survive, the second found in 1963. Cameron presents a full study of this second base, elucidating the iconography, explaining the inscriptions and also reassessing the first base. From the evidence of the bases and epigrams, he is able to reconstruct the careers of Porphyrius and fellow charioteers, exploring their fame and material rewards.
