In a paper published in 2016, the analysis of the inscriptions related to the mosaic lead to a new interpretation and chronological definition of the porch of the Terracina cathedral: rather than a mid-13th century building, as supposed until now, the paper suggested a date as early as the mid-12th century. This new article goes back to the reasons of that proposal and reflects on the possibility of a shift to the last quarter of the 12th century, in agreement not only with the results of the palaeographic analysis of the inscriptions, but also with the content of an archival document in which one of the characters depicted in the mosaic is mentioned.
