Contributions of Institute of Archaeology in Zagreb, Vol.24 No.1 July 2008. -

In this paper the author examines the inscription on one of numerous Roman lead tesserae found in the Kupa river near Sisak. This is a significant find as the inscription mentions the toponym Segestica, the pre-Roman name of the town. This is at the same time the only epigraphic mention of Segestica. In his analysis of the inscription the author attempted to determine the chronological and historical context in which the inscription may have been created and put forward certain hypothesis regarding the destiny of the pre-Roman Segestica and the continuity of usage of that toponym during the Roman period.
