Chapter Summary

Many scholars have discussed the Danubian wars of Marcus Aurelius. Their history has been examined comprehensively from the archaeological (Böhme), numismatic (Szaivert, Schindler-Horstkotte, Scheidel), and epigraphic points of view (e.g., Domaszewski, Stehlik, Rosen). This chapter attempts to reconstruct the history of the wars based on the ancient sources, with special emphasis on Pannonia. It discusses the ancient names of the wars and applies the results of earlier chapters, where the history of the lightning and rain miracles, and the history of the praetentura Italiae et Alpium is dealt with. The chapter also discusses the ancient names of the 'Marcomannic' wars. In Pannonia, the reconstruction of most of the palisade-period auxiliary camps into stone strongholds took place during the period of Commodus. This date, later than previously thought, was suggested by Bechert at the beginning of the 1970s during his research into gate towers.
