Mau translates this as 
'Lucius Sepunius Sandilianus the son of Lucius, and Marcus Herennius Epidianus the son of Aulus, duumvirs with judiciary authority, caused the seat and sundial to be made at their own expense.'

The same two duumvirs were also responsible for the sundial in the court of the Temple of Apollo. See Mau, A., 1907, translated by Kelsey F. W. Pompeii: Its Life and Art. New York: Macmillan. (p. 135-6).
