Inscription in the façade of Saint Peter in Golden Sky (Pavia), the church (crypt) where Boethius' mortal remains rest. The writing quotes the verses dedicated to him in the tenth canto of Dante's Paradise: "The body whence it was chased forth / lieth down below in Cieldauro and itself from martyrdom / and exile came unto this peace." (Transl. by P.H. Wicksteed and H. Oelsner - London 1908)
