Description Only a few years ago, the estate of French epigrapher Auguste Audollent was rediscovered at Museum Bargoin in Clermont-Ferrand (G. Németh, 2013). Among other unpublished lead inscriptions, there was an amulet, probably fashioned in order to protect a house (mala bestia foras dato...). The text (as deciphered and transcribed by A. Barta, 2017) represents a unique compilation of several apotropaic formulae without any known parallels from other texts preserved on amulets. In the presentation, the text is examined and one interpretation is proposed.
