(ed. Epigraphik-Datenbank Clauss/Slaby,  EDCS-13000781)
The presbyter Bonifatius reposes here in peace. He lived for 35 years and 4 months.
(trans. S. Adamiak)


There are no indications to the date of the inscription. Theveste (nowadays Tebessa in Algeria) was a Donatist stronghold, hence a possibility that Bonifatius was of that denomination.

Place of event:

  • Latin North Africa
  • Theveste
