Chapter Summary

A temporary military command of a financial procurator of Moesia Inferior would fit very well in the context of this Roman military presence, since the military danger was of such a kind that the vexillatio will have been larger than was usually the case, with the consequence that it had to be commanded by a more experienced equestrian officer than a tribunus militum. To honour T. Aurelius Calpurnianus Apollonides, Chersonesus Taurica took different measures. An annual sum accompanied by envoys of the Bosporan king across the Black sea is therefore much more likely to be a tribute of his kingdom brought to the nearest imperial fiscus than a subsidy destined for this king. Sumatar Harabesi is an important watering place with many wells situated in the Tektek mountains about forty kilometres north-east of Harran/Carrhae, first explored by Henri Pognon.

Keywords: Bosporan Kingdom; Chersonesus Taurica; Moesia Inferior; Roman military; Sumatar Harabesi
