IRCyr   Inscriptions of Roman Cyrenaica

C.460. Fragment

Description: Fragment of whitish limestone (w: 0.17 x h: 0.145 x d: 0.12). Stained brown and heavily encrusted.
Text: Inscribed on the face.
Letters: 0.052; letters, if ancient, Latin and certainly not earlier than first century CE, on a lightly incised guide-line. It is not impossible that they are modern (of the Italian period), although the encrustation is against that.

Date: Perhaps first to second centuries CE

Findspot: Cyrene: Sanctuary of Demeter and Kore: found re-used in modern wall, south of the Sanctuary.
Original location: Unknown.
Last recorded location: Cyrene Museum, Storeroom of the American excavations (Inv. no. 71-695)
