Borgone Susa

Archaeology

In Borgone, halfway between the statio at fines of Malano (Avigliana) and the ancient Segusio (the modern Susa), there is a Roman sanctuary carved bas-relief on the rocky wall in which is depicted a male figure that the popular tradition wanted to identify with Mohammed. The shape of an animal, presumably a dog, and two objects held in his hand, interpreted as a scepter and a frond, have led to identify him with god Silvano. An inscription on the front seems to be interpreted as a devotion to the deity by a certain Lucius Vettius Avitus.
