Keywords: Forged inscriptions, Forum Iulium, Iulium Carnicum, Altinum, Girolamo Asquini

Seven inscriptions from modern Friuli, written in Parma, Biblioteca Palatina, ms. 1191, c. 56rv, are taken into consideration. They are attributed to a hand (C) identified with the well-known forger Girolamo Asquini, from Udine. I try to explain why two of them (CIL V 1765 e V 1767) are ascribed to Altinum. The first one has some interpolations due to Asquini; therefore, I offer a new reading. Two of the inscriptions ascribed to Zuglio (CIL V 1842 and 1827) are considered forgeries; a third one (CIL V 1829) has spurious interpolations. I try to explain the reason behind all these forgeries and interpolations: the context is that of the old quarrel regarding the localization and administrative status of Forum Iulium, which Asquini thought to be modern Zuglio
