About the source:

Origin: Egara (Iberian Peninsula)
Denomination: Catholic/Nicene/Chalcedonian
The altar from the church in Egara is covered with graffiti, only some of which is legible. They are mainly names, of clerics as well as of laymen. They were scratched between the 7th and the 10th century (Hübner 1871, no. 190). Vives (1942, no. 332) gives analogies from Barcelona and Vilafranca.
