Site Notes

Handley/2001b, argues that the inscription from this site indicates that there was a hermitage or monastery somewhere in this neighbourhood. The inscription records the donation of this monastery by Occon son of Asaitgen some time in the late seventh or eighth century. The inscription also provides evidence for the practice of writing `Hisperic' Latin, and for knowledge and use of Isidore of Seville's Etymologiae.
