The plate remembers the names of Roman marble workers: CESARI(us) ET ANGEL(us) /MAG(ist)RI ROMANI FE/CERUNT HOC OP(us). Epigraphic characters attest a dating around 1200.
The slab size suggests that it was part of a vanished liturgical furniture. The names are supposedly those of the authors of the set-up Roman marble crypt, commissioned by Cardinal Pietro Capuano on the occasion of the Translation of the relics of the body of Saint Andrew to Amalfi in 1208.
