F.F.-Gruénais and F. Teichner, ZPE 188 (2014), 275-283, at 277 = AGRW ID# 24944


Two fragments of a tablet (35 x 25.5 x 2 cm and 9 x 4.8 x 2 cm). Twelve names of women (identified as wives) are mentioned, and the presence of the title of "mother" (for Aurelia Bazis) suggests this may be an ongoing association or collegium, as Feraudi-Gruénais also suggests (ZPE 188 [2014], 279). For another "collegium of women" (mulierum) see also CIL VI 10423, from Rome.
