Inscriptions from MA.Newt.Gulotta

A Boston area book-promotor, author, and collector, Victor Gulotta, owns an opisthographic funerary plaque of unknown provenance inscribed on both sides with Latin epitaphs of the early imperial period. According to the editor of the inscriptions, the tablet first appeared on the antiquities market in London in 1990 (Christie’s auction, December 12, 1990, no. 119) and was subsequently sold at auction in New York in 2002 (Sotheby’s auction, June 13, 2002, no. 130) to the David Dami Collection of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, whence it was acquired by the Victor Gulotta Collection in 2018. In all likelihood, the tablet originated in Rome.
