un personaggio morto nel 1050

Hi everybody,

Struggling with a bit of archaeology here:

"Si tratta di un monumento funebre di un personaggio morto nel 1050 e il cui nome non è più leggibile"

My attempt:

"It is the funerary monument of a dignitary:confused: who died:confused: in 1050 and whose name is no longer readable."

As you can see, I'm quite perplexed...
Any help is really appreciated,

    This sounds great to me. Not sure what you are perplexed about.

    Well, must be that I don't usually use words like "dignitary" and wanted to check if it made sense in this context; plus, it's past midnight and I'm still working, I'm probably perplexed about my own name!
    Thanks, it's been kind of you,
    PS: Thanks Leo57, I like "legible"!


    Hello everyone!

    I'm struggling with this translation..
    "Pinco Pallino, nato il 5 luglio 98 e morto il 6 agosto 99"
    Is it correct if I translate:
    "Pinco Pallino, born on 5 July 98 and died on 6 August 99" or is it better to write "pinco pallino, born on 5 July 98, died on 6 August 99"?

    thanks a lot!!
