An interesting inscribed ossuary, of urban production, found in 1978 in the crypt of the cathedral of Conza (Avellino), is studied here. The support is authentic and can be dated between the end of the 1st century AD and the beginning of the 2nd century AD, but the inscription is a fake.

Abstract

An interesting inscribed ossuary, of urban production, found in 1978 in the crypt of the cathedral of Conza (Avellino), is studied here. The support is authentic and can be dated between the end of the 1st century AD and the beginning of the 2nd century AD, but the inscription is a fake. It is probably engraved in Rome in the Seventeenth, as can be seen from the text, from the shape of the letters and from the punctuation marks.
