A survey of the onomastic and toponymic materials of the Cisalpina. The onomastic material is taken from the inscriptions in the Lugano alphabet, under the presupposition that the compound names in them "are not Lepontic because in the Lepontic language, onomastics are based on the use of suffixes, and not on composition" and that "therefore, all names in which we discover composition should be ascribed to the Gaulish linguistic and cultural world" (p. 101); in particular, she examines the inscription of Prestino (CO·48), that of San Bernardino of Briona (NO·21.1 and NO·21.2), that of Vercelli (VC·1.1, VC·1.2) and that of Todi (PG·1.1, PG·1.2, PG·1.3, PG·1.4) separately.
