”The subject has never been treated monographically before, even though some of its aspects have been discussed in historiography. The in‑depth study of this juridical class provides objective data regarding the way Roman law was applied at a provincial level, the population structures of the given province and its epigraphic representativeness. This work presents the matter exhaustively—as much as possible—while offering researchers a working tool in the form of its adjacent catalogue. It can also serve as a starting point for future studies regarding epigraphic habits of the lower classes in the Danubian provinces.” (The author)
