Church of San Sabino de Plano - Spoleto (PG)

It stands near a diverticulum of the Via Flaminia, in an area where the discovery of tombs and epigraphic materials from the Roman age has allowed us to attest to the presence of a cemetery.
Numerous re-used materials are used, including a funerary inscription, suggesting a reuse carried out by a stripping of the contiguous burial areas located along the Flaminia. The six large curvilinear ashlars reused along the outer wall of the church's right side apse are certainly pertinent to a drum tombstone.
A mutilated inscription indicates the holder, or rather the holders of the sepulcher, perhaps the Gens Caesia, already attested in Spoleto by a travertine memorial stone.
