This essay focuses upon a fragmentary Latin inscription found in Monselice in 1837. Giuseppe first Furlanetto published it in 1847. In 1872, Theodor Mommsen published it as CIL V 2484. However, among Furlanetto’s work materials there is a manuscript note that relates to the same inscription, but shows an intact epigraphic text. Maria Silvia Bassignano published it in 1997, maintaining that the inscription was a forgery. The digitization of the note in EDF, a re-examination of all extant documentation, the books of Livy, and a new analysis of the original inscription, now in Brescia, allow a reassessment of the whole matter, and prompt some methodological and epistemological remarks on the notion of epigraphic forgery.

Abstract

This essay focuses upon a fragmentary Latin inscription found in Monselice in 1837. Giuseppe first Furlanetto published it in 1847. In 1872, Theodor Mommsen published it as CIL V 2484. However, among Furlanetto’s work materials there is a manuscript note that relates to the same inscription, but shows an intact epigraphic text. Maria Silvia Bassignano published it in 1997, maintaining that the inscription was a forgery. The digitization of the note in EDF, a re-examination of all extant documentation, the books of Livy, and a new analysis of the original inscription, now in Brescia, allow a reassessment of the whole matter, and prompt some methodological and epistemological remarks on the notion of epigraphic forgery.
