The Turkish siege of Sinj in 1715, Virgil Meneghello Dinčić (copied)

1st century – Osinium

A votive altar with a damaged inscription reading /D/O/M/ et /G/enio Osini/atum/ P/ub/ius/ Rapidiu/s/ signifer c/ohortis... p/   (To God Foremost and Greatest and to Genius the patron of Osiniatum Publius Rapidius the standard-bearer of the cohort … raised). The inscription serves as evidence of the name of the town at the foot of Sinj fortress (Osinium, Osinij), from which Vsinj eventually originated.
