In 1991, during the croatian War of Independence, grenades which were fired from Serbian positions damaged the Porta Terraferma; in the period from 1993 to 1995, the damage was repaired and the antique spolia was discovered on the walking gallery. 64 on one hand, it seems that the presence of a larger recess on the upper part of the ara can be seen in the photograph, but on the other hand, the inscription is very clear and it speaks on behalf of its later origin regarding the burial (it was erected by the testamentary decision of the commemorator only).
