The aim of this paper is to bring into discussion some data concerning early Christian inscriptions from the Iberian Peninsula on the differentiation of Vulgar Latin, focusing on the several methods and procedures of collecting data (in corpora and databases), and the interpretation as regards Latin dialectology. The low number of specific dialectal traits in early Christian funerary epigraphy contrasts with specific local features that can be found when we put the epigraphic texts into their social and cultural context. We may conclude that Latin dialectal evidence in Late Antiquity should be evaluated according to its context. We can understand both common and specific traits of the written language from this perspective.

The activity of total monoamine oxidase (MAO) in the rat ovary and uterus fluctuates significantly under various physiological conditions. We analyzed total MAO activity in the hypothalamus, uterus and ovary in adult rats, having an extreme number of corpora lutea (hyperluteinized ovaries) resulting from the mechanical lesions in the posterior hypothalamic region of neonatal rats. Total MAO activity in the hypothalamus (30.21±1.53 pmol/mg tissue/min) and uterus (3.16±0.61 pmol/mg tissue/min) of rats with hyperluteinized ovaries did not show a significant difference as compared to that of intact controls (31.09±1.72 and 2.90 ± 0.40 pmol/mg tissue/min, respectively). In contrast, in the ovaries of hyperluteinized rats, total MAO activity (21.16±1.70 pmol/mg tissue/min) was significantly higher (p<0.01) when compared to that of intact controls (13.61±1.30 pmol/mg tissue/min). The increased MAO activity in the hyperluteinized ovaries may be attributed to the increased number of transformed and accumulated corpora lutea as a consequence of diminished luteolysis.
