The Tabula clesiana is a bronze plate size cm. 49.9 x 37.8 x 0.61, discovered in 1869 at Campi Neri near Cles in Trentino, northern Italy. It contains the edict of the Caesar Claudius of 46 AD which granted the Roman citizenship to the Alpine peoples of the Anauni, Sinduni and Tulliasses. It is actually conserved at the Castello del Buonconsiglio Museum in Trento.

The Tabula is an important evidence of the rapid assimilation by the Roman world of the Alpine peoples of farmers-hunters but also from the point of view of the Roman law the first evidence of the introduction of delatores in the fiscal controversy.[1] A translation of the Tabula is at .
