I have found several inscriptions in Latin that include the phrase „fecerunt/fecit pedes“
E.g. in the Basilica Sant‘Eufemia in Grado, Italy:
Martini/anus et Simplicia / cum fili/is suis / f(ecerunt) p(edes) C
In this inscription, fecerunt pedes is abbreviated as f. p. In the same Basilica, there’s also an inscription without these abbreviations that says:
Honora/tus cum / suis fe/cet pe/des XXV*
Both of these appear to be Founder‘s inscriptions. I would translate the first one as “Martinianus and Simplicia made the/ these feet with their sons“. However, that doesn’t make any sense as there is no relation with feet at the place of the inscription. Therefore, I‘d like to know if there is any additional meaning to the word pes, or another possible translation. On a side note: I don’t really understand why the second inscription says “Honoratus (…) fecet pedes“, when it should be (as far as I know) “…fecit pedes“
Thank you in advance!
