Sans closest to Roman inscriptions?

Which Sans matches the original roman inscription style closest?

Trajan Sans is very faithful to the inscription, but I don't know if you can really qualify it as "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”)

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;)
