Abstract

At the beginning of 1894 L. Pollak saw on the Roman antiquities market two little thin gold plates found in Falerii Veteres (modern Civita Castellana, near Viterbo, in the Ager Faliscus) bearing Greek inscriptions engraved. He published, fortunately, a sketch of the two inscribed gold plates. The first gold plate bears on one side the inscription “Κάλος ἐποίε̅σε” and on the other the letters “ΣΑ”. The second gold plate bears only on one side the inscription “hο παυ”. According to Pollak, the gold plates, dated to the first half of the fifth century BC, might be relevant to a gold crown. The first inscription could be the signature of a Greek skilled craftsman in gold processing
