The Vicchio Stele: The Inscription

Adriano Maggiani
Published Online: 2016-11-05 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/etst-2016-0018

Abstract

A recently discovered stele from Poggio Colla preserves one of the longest Etruscan inscriptions on stone, but because of its condition it presents challenges of transcription. Three areas of text are identified, and a preliminary reading of one of them is offered, confirming that it is a sacred text that relates to the cult at Poggio Colla. If this preliminary reading is correct, the names of two divinities, Tinia and Uni, are mentioned.

Keywords: Etruscan; epigraphy; stele; cult; Tinia; Uni
