abstract

The manuscript C VI a 77, once belonging to the 16th century humanist Bonifacius Amerbach and now preserved in the Universitätsbibliothek Basel, is not a high quality epigraphic manuscript, but includes at least a couple of Roman inscriptions elsewhere unknown. One of them, already published in the 1980s, is a dedication to Iuppiter Optimus Maximus set by an eques singularis; the other one is a dedication to Hercules Invictus – here published for the first time – set, when he was an urban praetor, by L. Turranius Venustus Gratianus, member of a well-known senatorial family of the 3rd/4th century AD.
