Abstract

This article describes the results of a short survey carried out in the Jewish catacombs of Venosa in April 2022, mainly aiming to check the state of the inner sectors I-O. These sectors are among those affected by various collapses, both ancient and modern; but although they have been visited several times in the past, up to this day no convincing description has ever been provided. As it happens, despite the damage and collapses, the I-O sectors can be still explored, albeit with some difficulties, and during the new exploration it was possible to ascertain the position and actual state of preservation of various epitaphs, as well as the conformation of various ambulacra and arcosolia. What’s more, in the course of the new survey, a number of new epigraphic fragments have been found.
Cet article décrit les résultats d’une courte examen mené dans les catacombes juives de Venosa en avril 2022, visant principalement à vérifier l’état des secteurs I-O, situé dans la partie la plus intérieure de la catacombe. Ces secteurs ont été frappés par divers effondrement des plafonds et des planchers, anciens et modernes ; mais bien qu’ils aient été visités plusieurs fois dans le passé, jusqu’à ce jour aucune description convaincante n’a jamais été fournie. Enfait, malgré les lézardes et les effondrements, les secteurs I-O peuvent encore être explorés, malgré les difficultés, et au cours de la nouvelle exploration, il a été possible de déterminer la position et les conditions de conservation de diverses épitaphes, ainsi que la conformation réelle de divers ambulacres et arcosolia. De nouveaux fragments épigraphiques ont également été trouvés.
