of Sextus Egnatius Primitivus
- Sextus Egnatius Primitivus was a brother of the Mitreo di Carsulae.
- Active c. 1st half of 3rd century in Carsulae, Umbria (Italia).
[The inscription TNMM 484] is a precious document revealing how the initiates were not only involved in the construction and maintenance of their places of worship, but also in their renovation, usually made necessary by mere obsolesce, but which, in this case, was exceptionally due to the destructive effects of an earthquake. The renovation works were taken care of by sacerdos probatus Sextus Egnatius Primitivus, Sevir Augustalis in Casuentum and Quaestor Arcae Augustalium from Carsulae. It is certain that an earthquake imposed some economy on the use of materials and it is not by chance that Sextus Egnatius Primitivus had the old moulding of a statue base reused as a support for the inscription; the holes for the pegs previously used to fix the statue are still visible.
