Un veteran de origine dacica de la Abrittus

Subiect: A New Roman Veteran of Dacian Origin from Abrittus In this short note I discuss a funerary inscription from the town Abrittus (Razgrad, Bulgaria) little known to the scholars. The funerary inscription was raised for the veteran T. Aelius Damaneus by bis freedmen and heirs, Atticus and Amaranthus. Published for the first time some twenty years ago into a Bulgarian short introduction 1 th history and archaeology of this Roman town (see in the Romanian text note 2), it was published, without a proper commentary by Sven Conrad in his brilliant book on the Roman funerary stelae from Moesia lnferior (see in the Romanian text note 1).

Preliminariile organizarii provinciei Dacia Inferior

Subiect: Les preliminaires de l’organisation de la Province de Dacia Inferior Apres l’organisation (vers 106) de la province romaine de Dacia, les territoires annexes par les troupes de la Mesie Inferieure au cours des guerres daces de Trajan (l’est de d’Oltenie, la Valachie, la Basse Moldavie et le sud-est de la Transylvanie) ont reste sous le controle militaire de cette province (selon l’hypothese de Boris Gerov, Klio, 37, 1959, p. 208-209; voir supra, note 14). En 118/119, l’empereur Hadrien organisa partiellement ces territoires (l’est de d’Oltenie et le sud-est de la Transylvanie) sous la forme d’une nouvelle province: Dacia Inferior (premiere attestation dans les diplomes du 17 juillet 122; voir les notes 1-2); en echange, ii abandonna la Valachie et I Basse-Moldavie. Quelques annees plus tard (probablement vers 123), on constate aussi des deplacements de troupes: l’ala I Gallorum Attectorigiana (attestee en 122 en I Dacia Inferior) revient dans la Mesie Inferieure; l’ala I Hispanorum (attestee en 119 en dacia Superior) est attribuee a l’armee de la Dacie inferieure; en echange, la cohors I Ubiorum, active entre 120-130 en Dacia Inferior, est transferee dans l’armee de la Dacia Superieure.

Participarea trupelor auxiliare din Moesia Inferior la razboaiele dacice

Subiect: The participation of Moesia Inferior’s auxiliary units to the Dacian Wars Starting from the new epigraphically data I tried to establish how many auxiliary units from the Moesia Inferior province participated at the Trajan’s Dacian Wars and when this happened. I considered that the Moesia Inferior’s army had not been involved in the military operations at the beginning of the First Dacian War. This involvement took place, in my opinion, after the Dacian’s attack on the province in the winter 101-102. I also considered that five alae and 11 or 12 cohorts were implicated in the wars, as we found out from our direct sources. Citeste mai mult

Cateva consideratii cu privire la rolul valurilor de pamant de pe teritoriul Daciei

Subiect: Augustus, after the settling of the Danubian frontier and consolidation of those formed by the Rhine and the Euphrates, decided to maintain the Empire within these borders. At the end of his reign, he thought his successor should not extend the existing frontiers but protect them. For these issues to be respected, they needed to realize some demarcation system. In the roman epoque, when the natural borders (ripa) were absent, the land was marked by a turf-wall (vallum) with its ditch (fossa). Taking into account the needs that made possible the construction of these turf-walls, they can be grouped in three categories such as: I. Turf-walls that have the function of a limes. This type is often met where the natural border (ripa) needs to be completed. Such examples are the va//um of the Transalutan limes, „Brazda lui Novac de Nord’, and ,,Brazda lui Novac de Sud”. 2. Turf-walls that have function as limltibus. These turf-walls role is „bureaucratic”, making the breath of the controlied area made by the Romans between the limes and Barbaricum. Examples of this kind of turf-walls are lsac’s ford -Sasac’s Lake and the one from Stoicani -Ploscuteni. 3. Turf-walls which work as a defensive element for a strategic area. They are smaller than the others and have a specific form – as an arch being centered upon the protection objective. This turf-walls are characteristic to the south of Moldavia where there was a need for some „bridge ends” build in Barbaricum because of the conditions. Examples are: Traian-Tulucesti and Cahul Lake-Cartal Lake turf-walls. Citeste mai mult

Ceramica romana de traditie dacica din zona Muscel

Subiect: Outre la ceramique d’import, la poterie confectionne dans la province de la Dacie romaine, presente deux aspects: a) la ceramique geto-dace realisee a la main et qui conserve le decor et les formes traditionnelles utilisee avant la conquete romaine ; b) la ceramique provinciale romaine, proprement dite, realise par la technique de la roue, mais qui a subi une influence moins typologique, mais particulierement en ce qui concerne le decor, adopte des geto-daces. C’est la rosace dace, a 4 petales, qu’on trouve sur la poterie de Cetateni, du troisieme siecle a.n.e. au premier siecle n.e. et representee sur la ceramique romaine par la variante a 5 petales, intercepte au castre romain de Jidava, pres de Campulung, de la fin du IIeme siecle, de notre ere, a l’occasion des fouilles effectuees en 1962-1964.

Castrul roman Jidava-Campulung (observatii preliminare)

Subiect: LE CASTRUM ROMAIN DE JIDAVA-CAMPULUNG Les nouvelles fouilles du castrum de Jidava, reprises en 1962 (elles avaient debute en 1876, et ensuite en 1901, avec les fouilles de D. Butculescu et respectivement celles de Gr. Tocilescu-P. Polonic) ont modifie en bonne partie les donnees concernant cet objectif. La stratigraphie comporte quatre niveaux : – le niveau de sous l’agger – consiste en une mince couche de cremation, avec charbons, fragments ceramiques, atres, os etc. – le second niveau – contemporain de l’agger a une correspondance temporelle avec la majeure partie des habitations de l’interieur du castrum. – les troisieme et quatrieme niveaux – ont ete identifies seulement sur une certaine surface. Il s’agit de l’habitation se trouvant entre l’horreum et le mur d’enceinte, et de quelques tours. La fin de ces deux niveaux est delimitee par de vestiges de brulure, tres marques. Le plan du castrum est en general du type habituel pour les IIe-IIIe siecles de n.e. (fig. 1). Il est entoure par tout d’un mur d’enceinte, flanque de tours demi-circulaires aux angles, et de tours carrees, de part et d’autre des portes d’acces, ainsi que de tours intermediaries. L’acces se faisait par quatre portes, situee chacune sur un cote. Citeste mai mult

Un cuptor dezafectat din asezarea dacilor liberi de la Rosiori (jud. Neamt)

Subiect: „In the archaeological campaign from 2016, in casket E, we discovered, between other complexes, and a ancient oven, from II – IIIth centuries after Chr., arranged beside dwellings. The oven was to -0,40 m depth and have structure worked from river stones, but fireplace from clay (maximum diameter 1,00 m-1,20 m). In time, the oven was destroyed for the most part. Lack of amounts pottery and the pots secondary burned suggests a different role most by usually, domestic. Also, around him we found two miniature pots, a burn bone, a fragment spoon and a central perforated base jar. The objects may be associated with a cultic activity.” Citeste mai mult

Campania arheologica din 2015 de la Rosiori–Neamt (punctul Tarina Veche)

Subiect: „In 2015 we reopened the archaeological excavations on the site from Rosiori, village Dulcesti, Neamt county (the last campaign organized there was in 2007). On this occasion we made two sections on the upper mound of the terrace of the Moldova river; they were marked as sections C and D, the first being 15,00 m long and the second 24,00m long with a width of 2,50 m respectively 4,00 m. From the stratigraphic point of view, the previous campaigns revealed the existence of two levels, one attributed to the IInd-IIIrd centuries and the other to the VIth-VIIth centuries; this year’s campaign showed that there was also a level which can be dated in the IVrd-IIInd centuries. The artifacts collected from the above mentioned levels are mainly ceramic but we also discovered and researched a number of closed complexes: two surface settlements and two pithouses (three of them belong to the free Dacians period and only one of them can be dated in the IVrd-IIInd centuries); an outdoor kiln and six trash pits (all of them dated in the IInd-IIIrd centuries). From the various archaeological materials we mention: Geto-Dacian and Bastarnic pottery, hand-and wheelmade pottery from the free Dacians period, clay items (spindle whorls, weights, rings), stone items (whetstone, groundstone, hammerstone), bronze items (an arrowhead and a bracelet) and animal bones. Among the discovered remains, the most important is the Geto-Dacian household, which brought to light Bastarnic pottery (L.1-Cas.D); the archaeological material confirms the coexistence of the local Getic communities with this Germanic population on the Moldova river. It is worth mentioning some of the closed complexes (which belong to the free Dacians) such as the outdoor kiln and the household with Roman amphoras fragments (with painted or incised letters) (L.3-Cas.D).” Citeste mai mult
