Abstract

The artificial harbour of Centumcellae was wanted and built by trajan. We have rich descriptions thanks to Pliny and Rutilius Namatianus; and find some references in the letters between Fronto and his pupil marcus Aurelius. the functions of the harbour were both commercial and military. the ap- proximately 150 inscriptions returned by civitavecchia are mainly funerary. on this occasion, we focus on the epitaphs of classiarii of the two fleets of Misenum and Ravenna, and on some texts that remind soldiers of other corps. the epigraphic sources are examined in order to understand the nature of the presence of these soldiers in the tyrrhenian ancient centrum, the relationships they entertained with the civilian population of the town and with the staff of the imperial villa.
