A small stone reliquary and a capsella reliquiarum originally from

Split and dated to the Early Christian era are published herein. The

capsella bears an inscription with the name of St. Severus, who

was previously unknown in the hagionymy of Split. It has been

assumed that its arrival in Split may be linked to Bishop John of

Ravenna and the donation of part of Diocletian’s Palace for the

diocesan seat by Severus the Great. Additionally, the seal of the

exarch Paul from the early seventh century and certain questions

tied to the Church of St. Matthew are considered.
