Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of terms that occur in the book on Marcus Aurelius' rain miracle and the Marcomannic wars . The most significant and longest war of the Roman imperial period (A. D. 166-180) is undoubtedly the war Marcus Aurelius waged with the northern German and Sarmatian tribes. His co-emperor, Verus, died in Altinum (A. D. 169) during this war and Marcus himself also passed away during the campaigns in Pannonia in March, 180. It was also no coincidence that books 1 and 2 of the emperor's Meditations were written in Pannonia and the neighbouring Barbaricum, as, due to the crisis, the emperor was obliged to spend his last 13 years in Pannonia.

Keywords: Marcomannic wars; Marcus Aurelius' rain miracle; Pannonia
