Opis: In 2003, a convolute containing several manuscripts dealing mostly with Celeian inscriptions was found in an antiquities shop in Vienna. The attention was firstly focused on the manuscript entitled "Mercurius et cornuta figura" consisting of four pages, which deals with the lost inscribed monument with a relief of Mercury from Celeia. Upon a detailed analysis of the convolute, it was discovered that it also contains a letter written by Andreas Dragerus, where the author (here known) focuses on the same monument. Data from both manuscripts add to our knowledge about the currently lost monument due to the fact that the circumstances of the find are described in detail. There is also a description of the relief and "Mercurius et cornuta figura" contains a sketch in which Mercury is depicted in accordance with Roman iconography. The attribute in his right hand is somewhat peculiar but can most likely be explained as a reflection of poor stone-cutting work or copying. The names on the inscription support the conclusion that Mercury's depiction is typically Roman - if it was to be Celtic, the list of worshippers would contain more Celtic names. Since the monument belongs to the second half of the 2nd C., the time when Romanization had already reached its peak and Latin names had already prevailed, just one Celtic name cannot present a decisive argument. The value of both newly discovered manuscripts cannot be doubted since they represent an important source for the more precise transcription of the inscription, an attempt at which is also included in the article. All Mercury's attributes, with which he was depicted on the monument, as well as his beautifully shaped athletic figure, confirm his Roman nature and the whole monument is a reflection of a Roman iconography which could have been created only in a well Romanized environment, which Celeia certainly was
