Using the constrained-fitting method based on Bayesian priors, we extract the masses of the two lowest states of octet and decuplet baryons with both parities. The calculation is done on quenched 163 × 28 lattices of a = 0.2 fm using an improved gauge action and overlap fermions, with the pion mass as low as 180 MeV. The Roper state N(1440)1/2+ is clearly observed for the first time as the 1st-excited state of the nucleon from the standard interpolating field. Together with other baryons, our preliminary results indicate that the level-ordering of the low-lying baryon states on the lattice is largely consistent with experiment. The realization is helped by cross-overs between the excited 1/2+ and 1/2- states in the region of mπ ∼ 300 to 400 MeV.
