This paper deals with the epigraphic culture of Aquileia during the first half of the fourth century and especially with the so-called civic inscriptions, i.e. building and honorific inscriptions which were presented to a broader public. The paper focuses on the epigraphic equipment of the forum at the beginning of late antiquity, on the urban expansion under Constantine and the inscriptions connected with this development, on the growing importance of milestones for imperial representation and on funerary epigraphy as well as on the new world of Christian inscriptions in Aquileia. The second part consists of a detailed catalogue of those inscriptions from Aquileia and its territory which are directly connected to Constantine and his sons.

L'articolo tratta della cultura epigrafica della prima metà del IV secolo, in particolare delle cosiddette civic inscriptions (iscrizioni civiche), cioè iscrizioni onorarie e di edifici pubblici che erano presentati ad un ampio pubblico. In particolare l'articolo si concentra sulle iscrizioni del Foro all'inizio del periodo tardoantico, e specialmente al momento dello sviluppo urbano sotto Costantino e la crescente importanza delle rappresentazioni dell'imperatore sui miliari, nonché nell'ambito delle iscrizioni funerarie e cristiane. La seconda parte presenta un dettagliato catalogo delle iscrizioni di Aquileia e del suo territorio direttamente collegate a Costantino e i suoi figli.
