The purpose of this article is a study of a new incomplete inscription. It is an honorary text, probably inscribed on the base of a statue dedicated to a personage of which we know the name: Cornelius. The inscription offers the possibility to suggest an excursus about Sardinia’s Cornelii and a chronology of its inscriptions. Among the members of this gens in Sardinia, we focus on the two Cornelii from Sulci: Lucius Cornelius Marcellus, flamen Augusti e IIIIvir and his son Lucius Cornelius Laurus. In a part of the text we know the cognomen, Marcellus; moreover we can observe a formal and typological affinity between both epigraphical texts and materials. Therefore is possible to argue that the inscription was a second honorary text dedicated to a member of Lucii Cornelii’s family from Sulci, perhaps the same Lucius Cornelius Laurus. This remark could highlights the prestige of this gens in the municipium of Sulci.
