Chapter Summary

MP Speidel, who studied the inscriptions often decorated with bas-reliefs, emphasizes quality and resemblance epitaphs Praetorian between the reigns of Caligula and Nero. They show enrichment of those bodyguards who at that time were the only military power to found a college, attested to as Germanorum collegium whose members were contributing to support the cost of engraving headstones. But the integration process in the elite of the garrison of Rome was brutally interrupted by Galba who disbanded the rear quarter Germani corporis. The change of vocabulary employed by Tacitus to designate Batavian soldiers between campaigns of Germanicus and the conquest of Britain encourages this application instead of the date of the Roman rules on military recruitment of Tiberius or that of Caligula. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Batavian soldiers; Germanicus; MP Speidel; Rome; Tiberius
