The first part of the paper describes the archaeological context and the grave goods found in 2002 in a Roman tornb within the necropolis of Posmon, near Montebelluna (Treviso): the burial, which contained ashes and burnt bones of one individuai and few typicaliy female objects, has been dated to the beginning of the second century CE. The second pan’ o/the article focuses on a new epigraphical document coming from this tomb: it is a small bronze tablet bearing an inscription which records L. Horatius Longus, who was a tribune of the second cohort of the vigiles and one of the highest magistrates in a municipium. The third part of the paper presents the results of the burnt bones analysis: they belonged to an adult female. The presence of the bronze tablet dedicated to a man inside a woman’s tomb leads to the interpretation of this object as a family heirloom.
