Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses few unanswered questions of individuality of record legion-wide, and shows that they are not only worth asking, but are possible to answer, given the nature of the evidence available for some legions. The author begins with a consideration of the similarities and differences between the individual epigraphic habits of two legions. A comparative examination of the epigraphic record of the XIV Gemina at Mogontiacum and the XV Apollinaris at Carnuntum precedes a consideration of how the epigraphic record of both was affected by the move of theXIV Gemina to Carnuntum. The author argues that the interaction of the two legions at Carnuntum, however brief, affected their epigraphic records in subtle ways, even as each legion retained certain features unique to its soldiers' epitaphs. Finally, the author considers the larger ramifications of his approach for future study of Roman legionary inscriptions.
