    The lack of punctuation is what's throwing me off. The words are written quite clearly, but I'm not sure about what it could say. I see helpis, and the only thing I could find for that is a wife of Boethius.

    Soli sanctissimo sacrum.
    Ti(berius) Claudius Felix et Claudia Helpis et Ti(berius) Claudius Alypus fil(ius) eorum votum solverunt libens merito Calbienses de coh(orte) tertia.


    I guess.

    Ti. could perhaps also be Titus... Not sure. I think I've mainly seen it for Tiberius before.

    NP.

    Do you get what it says now?

    As you can see, Helpis is just part of a proper name.

    Yea, I've got it- it's a dedication to Malakbel, and the carving makes it clear (in the beginning).

    It's definitely Tiberius. Titus is abbreviated T. Exceptions could occur to that, but I think a name "Titus Claudius" is unheard of.
    I guess these folks are either freedmen of a Tiberius Claudius or from a family line that was given citizenship by a Tiberius Claudius. (for instance, Caracalla's edict giving citizenship to all free men in the Roman Empire ended up giving a lot of people the praenomen-nomen combination Marcus Aurelius which was part of Caracalla's name)
