The part of a sarcophagus discovered during the renovation of the floor of the choir section in Split’s cathedral was formerly part of the inscription collection of Dmine Papalić, and until recently it was considered lost. Of the sarcophagus, which bore two inscriptions, only a fragment of the front left side has been preserved with a portion of its inscription. What is known is that the sarcophagus with the frontal inscription emerged not later than 358, and that it was formerly installed in Salona, and that it was commissioned by Deacon Flavius Julius and his wife Aurelia Januaria during his lifetime. This paper analyzes the onomastic and linguistic characteristics of the inscription, i.e. the forms of Vulgar Latin in Salona during Late Antiquity.
