Description Just a few years ago, the estate of Frenche epigrapher Auguste Audollent was rediscovered at Museum Bargoin in Clermont-Ferrand(G. Németh 2013). Among other unpublished lead inscriptions, there was an amulet probably created for the protection of a house - mala bestia foras dato... The text (as deciphered and transcribed by A. Barta 2017) represents a unique compilation of some apotropaic formula without any known parallels from other amuletic writings. The contents of the text will be examined, as will the specifics of domestic phylacteria and their deposition in comparison with personal amulets worn on the body.
