Judging by the vocabulary, especially by the use of cui and fieri iusserunt, Gauthier dated this inscription cautiously to the eighth century. Andrea Binsfeld, however, following in part the reasoning of Hiltrud Merten, proposed the earlier dating, possibly fifth/sixth century. The main arguement for the earlier date is the style of the vine-ornament. Gauthier's remarks on the vocabulary do not hold true as well.
It is impossible to determine the character of familial ties between the three people mentioned in this epitaph. There are three possibilities:
A. Deacon Augurius was the son of the Presbyter Aufidius; Aufidius' sister was called Auguria.
B. Deacon Augurius was the son of Auguria, sister of the Presbyter Aufidius.
C. Deacon Augurius was the son of the Presbyter Aufidus and Auguria; in this case, soror describes not the close relative, but rather a tenderness of relations between spouses. Andrea Binsfeld pointed out that the abbreviation s, which Gauthier read as soror, could denote sponsa ("spouse") as well.
