A new Latin inscription to Hercules from Sicily

David Meadows notes a report in Marsalace (“Ritrovata un epigrafe in lingua latina nel parco archeologico di Capo Boeo: ieri la presentazione al Baglio Anselmi”, 27 March 2008) regarding the discovery of a Latin inscription to Hercules, likely to have originated in a temple but discovered in conditions of reuse in Marsala (ancient Lilybaeum = BAtlas 47 A3).
