This inscription recording an unequal alliance between the Spartans and the Erxadieis has been given dates ranging over almost the whole of the Peloponnesian League’s existence: recent arguments for a late date on the grounds of the formulations used are not cogent; the “exiles” mentioned are probably the Messenians settled at Naupactus between c. 455 and c. 400, and the lettering favours either c. 450 or c. 426.
In his paper the author examines the written and epigraphic sources on Caracalla’s visit to Pannonia. Despite the earlier hypothesizes the visit must bed dated to the autumn of 213 because the emperor stayed at the end of December in Nicomedia. As the Alamannic war ended only in September and his route to the East Caracalla could spend a very short time in Pannonia, i. e. he travelled only through the province that is why the written sources hardly mentions this visit. Most of the inscriptions mentioning the emperor from this period has nothing to with this visit. Based on a Greek inscription from Ephesus the emperor had to stop only in Sirmium most probably because of the Dacian problems. He had no time to visit Dacia either. A Barbarian attack into Pannonia under his reign must be ruled out.
There is a Roman tombstone containing a Greek inscription in the possession of the Déri Múzeum of Debrecen. Its origins and place of discovery were unknown until recently. This paper finds an indubitable identity between the artefact and the stele that was described in the 1904 publication of C. Patsch and republished by P. Cabanes and N. Ceka in 1997, this time already marked as lost. This way the stele can be connected to ancient Apollonia with great certainty. In the remaining part of his paper the author tries to define the function of the stele more precisely by examining it from every perspect; comments on the question of the relationship between the persons depicted on it and finds new perspectives concerning the earlier interpretation of the depiction and certain decorative elements. The many material and painting remains that can still be found on the stone raises the necessity of scientific examinations to be done on the stone, part of which have already been carried out and in case of favourable conditions further examinations will be possible as well.
