I have a Jacobus Stainer violin, it's hard to read

Customer Question
I have a Jacobus...

I have a Jacobus Stainer violin, it's hard to read everything on the inside, but I see Jacobus Stainer in Absam? Prope Oenipontum

Expert's Assistant: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I just sent a message, did you get it?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?

My great grandfather repaired it in 1924

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help. I've been an appraiser of musical instruments for 28 years, and am the President of the Association of Online Appraisers.

There should be a date after the word "Oenipontum". Can you make it out?
