About the source:

Origin: Tarragona (Iberian Peninsula)
The inscription is known from the work of the 16th c. scholar Antonio Agustin who collected the inscription from Tarragona and its environs (Hübner 1871: no. 189). Agustin notes also a variant reading of the name of a city AEDITANE. The location of the city is unknown, Hübner notes, however, that there is a city Albi on the route from Tarragona to Lerida. Vives (1949: 219a) doubts the authenticity of the inscription.
