This paper studies an unpublished brick stamp, found during the excava- tion of the roman necropolis of Monte Carru in Alghero: on the basis of the epigraphic text, it must be connected to the urban center of Tharros. The brick stamp attests the presence at Tharros in the second half of the first century BC, of a brick production, within the properties of the Fundanii, probably included in commercial circuits in the north-west of Sardinia. Through the stamp the suggestive hypothesis, already advanced about another inscription by Tharros, of the presence in the city of fundi belonging to Fundania Galla, wife of the famous scholar Varro Reatinus, is proposed again.
