Comments

Saint Rupertus revived at the site of the ruins of an ancient city, the exploitation of salt and thus contributed to the creation of the city of Salzburg (699-700). St Virgilus, of Irish origin, abbot of Salzburg's St Peter's monastery, was bishop of the city (766-784).

There is a variant with the value in roman numeral.
