TESSERAE  & TABULAE

Inscriptions, expressing different types from agreements or commitments between people and/or communities, pacts that are well-known throughout our ancient history and in which legal figure of the hospitium, indigenous as well as Roman, is emphasized appear in the tesserae (which are usually smaller different in shape and made of diverse materials) as well as in the tabulae (smooth, bronze plates, in general, although there are also some with decoration).

In this subscription to e-Castrexo, we want to remember those pacts made by our ancestors, using the support of the tabula found in Mount Cido (Carbedo do Caurel, Lugo, Galicia, Spain), with an agreement signed in year 28 A. D., under the control of magistrates Latinus and Aius, between Tillegus, from the town of the Susarri and the Lougei from the castellum (hillfort) of Toletum (that is not the town Toledo of Spain), establishing for himself and his descendants a pact of hospitality and "clientele".
