Abstract

The Cippus is a boundary stone (whose studies are ‘weighed down’ by countless doubts and few certainties) bearing an inscription of an Oscan text describing an agreement between Abella and Nola, concerning three constituent parts: a sanctuary, the land surrounding the sanctuary (lying within an ager previously limited by communi sententia issued by the respective senates of the cities concerned), and a road lying on the boundary between the two territories and the ager in which the sanctuary was located. The Cippus states that the ligatús (= legates) charged with assisting the magistrates of the respective communities in the definition of the agreement were appointed both in Abella and in Nola by means of senateís tanginúd (= senatus sententia).
