In the church of St. Andrew de Lavina in Salerno, there is a Greek inscription which was discovered on a wall of the vaulted underground room brought to light by archaeologists in 1997. That inscription is here transcribed in full for the first time and published on the basis of a photograph taken in 2003
prior to restoration. It is an important witness to the epigraphic tradition of the epigrams «on various subjects» by Theodore Stoudites. This inscription transmits the text of epigram XXII Speck in what is apparently a «pre-editorial» recensio that provides a significant textual variant for its first verse.
