Az MNM Adattárában számos olyan kôemlékre van utalás, rendszerint még a 19. századból, amelyek a nagy corpusokból (CIL, RIU) kimaradtak, máig közöletlenek, ráadásul azóta elvesztek. Jelen munkában a szerzôk négy új feliratot adnak közre Bölcskéről, Madocsáról, Visegrádról, illetve Veszprém megye területéről. Ezek közül a bölcskei a legjelentősebb, amely töredék a Commodus kori burgus és praesidium építésifeliratok sorozatának 17. darabja, ezek közül is a legdélebbi lelőhelyû. Minden valószínűség szerint a bölcskei későrómai hídfőállással hozható kapcsolatba.
In this paper the author studies the relationship of Christian communities in Pannonia. On the basis of literary (esp. Victorinus of Poetovio) and epigraphical sources it can be stated that the first communities were of Greek origin. The knowledge of Greek can be pointed out in Latin inscriptions as well. Especially the case of Sirmium was studied. In the present paper the author reinterpreted a Greek and a Latin inscription from Sirmium and Savaria as Christians.
In his preface (M. Annaeus Lucanus: De bello civili. Bibliotheca Teubneriana. Stuttgart, 1988; 1997), D. R. Shackleton Bailey promises to provide the readers with an edition of Lucan which is based on Housman's text and contains certain improvements. In this short paper I would like to confine myself to the discussion of only two problematic passages, which might illustrate that instead of the rationalization we should attempt to find out about the manuscript tradition by examining it rather than labelling it suspicious right away.
In this paper the author publishes a new Roman grave-altar from Bikács
(County Tolna). The richly decorated altar was erected by a peregrine Eraviscus
and it can be dated to the first decades of the 2nd century. In eastern
Pannonia very few grave-altars are known and this is the first one which was
erected to a native father. He still had a Celtic cognomen but his son was
called Appius. The find-spot can be found in the southern edge of the civitas
Eraviscorum. This region is very poor in inscriptions.
Marcus Aurelius saved the Roman army in the Barbaricum in the war against the Germans (during the Marcomannic wars) around 172 AD. He followed the various pagan and Christian versions of the lightning and rain miracles. During his work he collected the antique and medieval sources concerning the miracles from the beginning of the 3rd century (Tertullian) to the 14th century. The author examined the possible (and heavily disputed) date of the events and their representations in the Column of Marcus Aurelius.
