In last week's Explorator, D. Meadows tells about an important
epigraphical discovery in Spain.
What he doesn't tell is that one of the most curious things there are a
few ostraca with egyptian hieroglyphs ... in a IIIrd Century AD settings.
The site also has some paleochristian remains (the most notable a
drawing of a Calvary).
you'll find very nice photos of the ostraca.
For those not aquainted. Iruñea Veleia is located in current Alava
province. This area has been traditionaly held as a rather backwood
location regarding romanization.
Any comments ?
