Just as a point of interest, where is the inscription? Is it a ruin from classical antiquity or is it a modern building?

It is from the Pompeii Forum, according to this site: http://www.eurotypo.com/english/latin_alphabet.html. So not a modern building, :).

I have not been to Pompeii but I did take in the traveling exhibit of preserved treasures from Pompeii including frescoes from some of the houses. Fascinating. As for the lettering we are looking at a provincial interpretation of the lettering we often call Trajan. There are many modern versions, but for a substitute for your inscription I sort of like Classic Roman Light MT http://www.identifont.com/find?font=classic+roman&q=Go The link includes references to very similar fonts which also work as substitutes.
