This monument still stands, with two others, at the side of the Montée de Choulans above Vieux Lyon. Easily accessed - as are the Roman theatres and archaeological museum - using funicular F1. The railings and statue facing the road have gone. Ten monuments were originally found in the 1885 during railway construction, about 500 yards away at the corner of Place de Trion and Avenue Barthélemy Buyer. The five "most interesting" were taken down and reconstructed at the present site, Place Eugène Wernert. It would be interesting to know what the statue was, where it went, and why. The monument itself was to Turpio and its inscription reads: Q-CALVIO-Q-LPAL-TURPIONI-SEVIRIO-REGILUS-CHRESIMUS- MURRANUS-DONATUS- CHRESTUS-LIBERTEI-EX-TESTAMENTO
