Dalla raccolta epigrafica di Lodovico Soncini una dedica bresciana a Iuventus ritrovata (CIL V 4244)
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
At the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Lodovico Soncini, a great antiquities enthusiast patrician from Brescia, set up a remarkable epigraphic collection. Several elements of this collection came from donations made by various representatives of the cultural institutions of the city, and some of these were never removed from their original location, even if they regularly became part of private collection. Among these items, a dedication to Iuventus, traditionally considered lost, has recently been rediscovered in Passirano (Bs). It could be an altar or more likely a statue base, presenting a problematic sequence of letters in the second line of its text; the dedication may have been placed by two men whose names are expressed in an abbreviated and are therefore partially anonymous or by only one of them.
