Which Sans matches the original roman inscription style closest?
[[http://store1.adobe.com/cfusion/store/html/index.cfm?store=OLS-US&event=...|Trajan Sans]] is very faithful to the inscription, but I don't know if you can really qualify it as "sans". [[http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/tipo-pepel/trajana-sans/|Trajana Sans]] may be what you're looking for. I must say the charm of the subtle modulation of the roman inscription gets lost in the latter.

Legacy Sans (albeit a “Jenson”)
[[http://www.p22.com/ihof/pdfs/roma.pdf|Roma]] from P22 may be worth considering.
Hmmm. The closest thing in my mind to that picture, is Throhand - Pen Roman, but Throhand - Pen Sans, that doesn't exist... and Throhand - Pen Dragon, but that's another story;)
Ok, how about mono-line sans?
Ok, how about slab serif sans?
