a token of friendship in Marsala

Archaelogical Museum Baglio di St. Anselmo - Marsala                

Tessera Hospitalis

two ivory hands holding
and a Greek  inscription on the other side
about a token of friendship

between a Greek and a Punic
signed in the ancient Lilibeo
in the Roman times

no matter if the greek inscription has some grammar mistakes
this promise of friendship is sacred
as friendship is sacred
