Hey would someone be so nice to translate following latin graffitis from pompeii:

"Acti vale"-

"Cornelium aedilem) / d(ignum rei publicae oro vos faciatis. Anice facit" -

"Actius Anicetus libertus rogat" -

"Probum / Marcus Cer[3 li]bert(us)" -

Thanks in advance!

You need to provide some context to your request.
 

Agrippa

Well, it's worth a try…

Cf. https://www.pompeiiinpictures.com/pompeiiinpictures/R1/1 03 23.htm

"Acti vale"- Actius farewell!

"Cornelium aedilem) / d(ignum rei publicae oro vos faciatis. Anice facit" < Cornelium aedilem dignum rei publicae oro vos faciatis. Anicetus facit.

I beg you to make Cornelius aedile, worthy of the Republic (i.e. worthy of administration). Anicetus does it.

"Actius Anicetus libertus rogat" – Actius Anicetus freedman asks (for it).


"Probum / Marcus Cer[… li]bert(us)" – Marcus freedman of Cer… … ? Probus.
