720Tombstone carrying the earliest documentation on Lasa's marble

The oldest document on Lasa’s marble is represented by a tombstone that Victor III, bishop of Chur, had ordered to be transported and carved around 720 AD, for a male inhabitant of Vinschgau whose name is not better identified: "Hic sub ista lapide marmorea qvem Vector ver in lvster preses ordinabit venire de Venostes hic reqviescit dominus”. Here lies this man, beneath this marble stone that the eminent count Victor has had transported from the Val Venosta.
