Probably a marble plaque. There is no published description. Present whereabouts unknown, probably lost. First seen by Boldetti in the cemetery of Prisicilla on the via Salaria in the first half of the eighteenth century.

Discussion

Admittedly, it is possible that the saints mentioned here are the ordinary Christians, not the 'proper' saints. Dating: The editors of the Epigraphic Database Bari date the inscription to the late third/early fourth century.
