This paper is focused on three unpublished inscriptions, from the territory of ancient Compsa, today Conza della Campania (Avellino). They were engraved on a particular type of tombstone, which Theodor Mommsen first called cupa. The inscriptions are noteworthy for the linguistic phenomena and for the onomastic aspects, among which is the attestation of the female surname Sabbatis, of Semitic origin and rarely attested outside of Rome and Ostia.
