The fragments bear two inscriptions from which reads that in the sarcophagus were buried two persons. The inscription on the central field belonged to an unknown person who was buried the first in the sarcophagus. From the other inscription, which commemorated the person later deceased, we know that his name was Anastasius. Both men were the ostiarii, i. e. the ostiaries (porters) in the Salonitan early Christian church. These men were probably buried in a span of a year or two, which is concluded by partially preserved mention of the indictions. The sarcophagus shows several interesting features which include the Vulgar Latin text, some special characters, but also the fact that the sarcophagus itself was originally made in 3rd (or perhaps late 2nd) century and remodelled in 5th century. The aim of this work is, along with the publication of these fragments, to make a comparison with the other epigraphic monuments and to expand our current knowledge about the service of ostiarius in the early Christian church.
