In this paper, its authors describe and analyze several new Antique

monuments from the town of Skradin. Particularly significant are

those monuments which document for the first time worship of

the cult of the Magna Mater in ancient Scardona. This includes

the altar bearing a dedication to -Matri Deum Magnae- and a

marble head of the goddess, which were found in the village of

Skorići just above Skradin, where materials excavated during

construction of Skradin’s sewage system were dumped. An altar

bearing a dedication to Jupiter was found at the same site. These

monuments are owned by Ivan Skorić. A fragment of a Liburnian

cippus and a small fragment of a grave inscription are held in the

parish rectory in Skradin. A marble figurine of Liber-Dionysus

found in Piramatovci is currently owned by Mile Bedrica. The

gravestone of the Papinius family from Salona, documented in

Rupotina above Solin in 1886, is currently owned by Tome Pulić.

The authors also describe the parts of the stone quay of

ancient Scardona’s harbour, which they observed along the right

bank of the Krka River downstream from Rokovača Bay, i.e. the

extension of the contemporary ACI Skradin Marina.
