Chapter Summary

One immediate problem that we encounter in collecting a corpus to study the phenomenon of the collegia centonariorum is whether or not the heavily abbreviated col. c., c.cent., col./coll. cent., and cc should be restored as collegium centonariorum. There is no doubt that in many cases, we can make such restoration with confidence. Those inscriptions in which both the abbreviated and the complete forms of collegium centonariorum are used provide convincing evidence for such restoration. Another type of problem concerns the terminology tria collegia and, consequently, the broader question of the phenomenon of the tria collegia. The term tria collegia appears six times in four cities total.

Keywords: Collegia Centonariorum; tria collegia
