Abstract

In this article we propose a new reading of the short South Picene inscription which was recently published in this journal by V. Belfiore and A. Gaucci, which is written in the South Picene alphabet on a funerary stele found near Mondolfo (PU). The inscription consists of three masculine names in the nominative (in -s); as such it does not much broaden our (limited) linguistic understanding of South Picene, but its discovery in an area between Fano and Senigallia considerably expands to the north the area in which it is attested. This has the effect of making the extent of known South Picene inscriptions fit much more closely the ‘Picene culture’ as commonly defined in archaeological terms.
