Description Lost verse inscription in eight lines known through Cod. Pal. Lat 833 and CIL. The attribution to Spoleto is grounded on the fact that in the sylloge of Cod. Pal. Lat 833 the inscription preceeds those of the Bishop Achilles, which were certainly in this city.

Description Lost inscriptionin six lines known through CIL. It was found in the XVII cent. in the course of restoration works on the floor of the choir; it seems likely that this was the original burial site and that the panel had not been reused there as paving slab. The Church of S. Pietro was a favourite burial site for bishops and important figures of the time.

Description Square marble panel with inscription in seven lines. The text fills up the entire space with a fairly irregular justified alignment; lines are straight and equally spaced. Letters are quite carelessly carved, evenly sized but quite irregularly spaced. The panel was seen outside the Church of SS. Apostoli and, considering the severe erosion of its surface, it seems most likely that it had been reused there as a paving slab.

The support has been dramatically reshaped, yet its nature is explicited by the inscription itself (sarcophagum duplex). The text has irregular lay-out but straight ductus; letters are quite carefully carved, quite evenly sized and spaced; ll. 7-8 are in smaller format. Hederae distinguentes mark metric rythm and small curvilinear punctuation marks are used after abbreviated words on ll. 7-8. It was found cut and reused as building material, walled in a basin.

Detail Reused as building material in the wall of the left nave
Description Rectangular limestone block, quite roughly carved; the right side is treated with a rough anathyrosis and there are several clamp and dowel holes, indicating that the block was originally created as building material and was subsequently reused as an epigraphic support. The inscription on the front is in 9 lines and it is carved over the lower two thirds; it has justified lay-out with irregular, fluctuating ductus on ll. 6-9. Letters are quite irregularly carved, especially on ll. 6-9 where they become compressed and unevenly spaced. Considering the position of the text and the type of lettering, it may be that ll. 6-9 are an addition carved not long after the first part of the text. A cross marks the beginning of ll. 1 and 6. On the ride side, text in two lines engraved near the bottom end, on the smoother part of the surface. It might come from the early Christian necropolis existing in the area under the Church of S. Gregorio; it was found reused as building material in the wall of the left nave and in modern times it was turned into an altar support in the presbytery.

Vantaggioli. The text is perfectly justified and has very regular ductus and line-spacing, with a larger space only before the last line. Letters are deeply and very carefully carved, very evenly sized and spaced, with the last line in smaller format. For the Bishop Spes, see also n. 1195.

The function of the support is unclear: given its dimensions and the position of the inscription, we may prsume that it served as some kind of lid, either for a large urn or for a sarcophagus. The two fragments were found reused as a threshold in the right hand side entrance door of the facade; its original display context is unclear, it may perhaps have come from an early Christian necropolis located under the church.

Description Three frieze-architrave blocks belonging to the front and sides of the so called Tempietto del Clitunno. The architrave section is framed on top by a Lesbian kyma and bears two fasciae divided by a line of beads and reels, while the frieze section is carved with an inscription in one line. The text has an extremely regular ductus and the beginning and end of each section is marked by a cross. Letters are very carefully carved with small, elegant serifs and a square module which, on the sides, tends to become slightly elongated; there are superscript bars above abbreviated words. The dating and interpretation of the monument are still very controversial: some scholars believe it to be a V cent. original realization, while others consider it a VII-VIII cent. building, mainly made of reused spolia. Reused materials are certainly attested in it, and while the inscription of the front side is carved on a polished, new surface, those of the two sides are carved on a rough one that bears the signs of the effacement of an earlier text.

The text has very regular lay-out with left alignement; letters are very carefully traced, spaced and sized, with the first line of larger format; MP in ligature at the end of l. 5. Words are consistently separated by round punctuation marks or by tiny hederae distinguentes (a larger one at the end of l. 4), and the end of the text is marked with a palm branch.

At either sides of the panel, run two lines of text which have regular ductus and regular, justified lay-out. The beginning of the text is marked by a cross and there is a superscript bar above the abbreviated word of l. 2. Letters are carefully carved, with regular sizing and spacing which only in the second part of l. 2 tend to become slightly more compressed. Most likely it was transferred to the Church of Santa Maria Assunta in 1351, together with the martyr's relics.

Description Marble architrave with two fasciae; the upper fascia is framed on top by a Lesbian kyma and it is separated from the lower one by a line of elongated beads and reels; on the under side there is a thin lacunar carved with laurel leaves. The original inscription has been effaced; signs of the erasure and traces of earlier letters can be detected on the whole surface of the two fasciae. The text, in four lines, has a fairly regular ductus and hederae distinguentes consistently mark the metric division of the verses in hexameters. Letters are quite carefully carved, but have several irregularities in sizing and spacing, due in most cases to the remnants of the older inscription which limit the available space (esp. beginning of l. 1). L. 1 is in larger format.

Description Statue base reused as a funerary altar with inscription in eleven lines carved over the erasuere of the earlier text. It appears that the base was originally of a monolithic moulded type and was subsequently reshaped into a block-type one by eliminating the moulded ends (traces of the moulded plinth remain near the bottom margin). The text has a rather peculiar layout, with l. 1 containing both the formula D.M. and the name of the deceased, and l. 11 with just one letter. The rest of the text has justified alignment, straight ductus and regular line spacing. Letters are quite carefully carved, evenly sized and spaced; l. 8 is in smaller format. The inscription belongs to a soldier of the Legio II Italica which had been moved from Divitia in Raetia to Italy in the course of the war between Constantine and Maxentius. Its findspot is unrecorded; it had been seen "in a garden near an old patrician Palazzo" (un giardino prospiciente un antico palazzo patrizio) and was then moved at an uncertain date under an unidentified "small porch" (Prosperi Valenti in Epigraphica 43).

Description Marble panel with inscription in five lines. A simple large fillet in reliefs frames the top margin of the epigraphic field, while an acanthus scroll, simply rendered with an incised line, fills the void in its lower part. The text shows a regular lay-out with straight ductus; letters are lightly yet quite carefully carved and are evenly sized but rather irregularly spaced: l. 1 is more compressed, while l. 4-5 are much looser. The panel was found in the course of restoration works carried out in 1968 on the floor of the Abbey.

Description Large rectangular marble panel framed by a thick fillet in relief and, on the lower margin, by two scrolls of acanthus originating from a small rosette placed at the centre; the middle of the panel is taken up by a large cross sided by two lambs facing it. There are traces of colour: red on the background and gold on the cross and lambs. The verse inscription, in eight lines, is set within two rectangular panels set at either side of the cross, above the lambs. The text has very regular ductus and letters are very carefully carved, evenly sized and spaced; l. 8 is in slightly larger format. On l. 1, a cross marks the beginning and a hedera distinguens paired with a thin palm branch fills the space at the end of the line; a similar palm branch is at the end of l. 6. Punctuation marks in the shape of a rather long curvilinear stroke are used after abbreviated words on ll. 7-8. Originally the panel marked the grave of S. Cassius and it was moved to its present location in the course of a rearrangement of the chapel, probably in the XIV cent.
