Dedica votiva di Aristeis


Francesco Maniglia    Università di Bologna    


A quadrangular silver plaque from Francavilla Marittima (Sybaris), the inscription is bustrophedic and consists in a private votive offering commissioned by Aristeis, a woman, to an unknown deity. The structure of the text and the graphic peculiarities of the letters bring to a chronology about late 7th-early 6th century.
