Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 968-973 str.Other title: Altars Set Up by Roman Soldiers at Military Sites on the Danubian and Delmataean Limes in Croatia [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 6.07 | Croatia ; Danube and Delmataean Limes ; altar ; religion ; roman military | Croatia ; Danube and Delmataean Limes ; altar ; religion ; roman military In: 23. International Limes Congress Ingolstadt 2015 str. 968-973Summary: Numerous epigraphic inscriptions come from Roman military sites along the Croatian part of the Danube and Dalmataean Limes, and part of them have been found on Roman altars. This research will analyze the altars set up by Roman soldiers, in two geographically and chronologically separate areas. The first area is the Danube Limes, 188 km long, and encompasses the forts Batina Skela (Ad Militare), Zmajevac (Ad Novas), Nemetin (Ad Labores), Dalj (Teutoburgium), Sotin (Cornacum) and Ilok (Cuccium). Altars dedicated by Roman soldiers recovered from the civilian settlements of Osijek (Mursa), Petrijevci (Mursella) and Vinkovci (Cibalae), located in the outback of the Danube Limes, will also be included in this research. The second area is the Dalmataean Limes, and includes the legionary fortresses Ivoševci (Burnum) and Gardun (Tilurium), as well as the auxiliary forts Tepljuh (Promona), Balina Glavica (Magnum), Gornji Muć (Andetrium) and Humac (Bigestae). The research will also include the altars from Solin (Salona), an administrative centre of the province of Dalmatia, located in the outback of the Dalmataean Limes, where a large number of military finds have also been documented. When it comes to Roman altars dedicated by soldiers, the altars set up by the beneficiarii, which have been found across the province, shall not be excluded. They represent a third, mostly geographically and partly chronologically, distinct area. The purpose of this research is to establish the chronology and typology of Roman military altars. This type of research is the first of its kind carried out on the altars from Croatia, and it is part of a larger project examining the typology and chronology of Roman altars from Croatia.
