The milestone analysed is a valuable confirmation of some key aspects of the topography of the Roman province of Sardinia. It sets the route between Bosa and Cornus, redefining the ancient road further to the west and near the coast than the current road, which borders the Montiferru hills. Furthermore, epigraphy is the main indicator to the activity of proconsul M. Cornuficius, which provided to build a road segment. Considering these features, the same route seems to be a part of the western coastal route that was conceived from Punic age to connect the main Phoenician and Punic colonies of Sardinia.

Abstract

The milestone analysed is a valuable confirmation of some key aspects of the topography of the Roman province of Sardinia. It sets the route between Bosa and Cornus, redefining the ancient road further to the west and near the coast than the current road, which borders the Montiferru hills. Furthermore, epigraphy is the main indicator to the activity of proconsul M. Cornuficius, which provided to build a road segment. Considering these features, the same route seems to be a part of the western coastal route that was conceived from Punic age to connect the main Phoenician and Punic colonies of Sardinia.
