This paper relates the Pontilieni, whose name appears on the lead lingots coming from Carthago Nova, and who were inscribed in the Fabia tribe, with the Pontulena Casta of a sarcophagus from Ascoli Piceno. It is a study of the origin of this family name and of the few Pontilieni/Pontuleni known by epigrahy. Some thoughts about the Picene Lollii and also about the relations of Carthago Nova with the Adriatic are given.
