CIMRM Supplementum for Dacia: some notes

January 30, 2015

As in many provinces already exist, a revision of Vermaseren’s monumental corpus is a great necessity.

Here are some new elements, recently (re)discovered which change some pages in the CIMRM.

CIMRM 1938 – rediscovered last year in the museum of Arad

CIMRM 1986 – not exist, identical with the previous one

CIMRM 2033 – first English publication of the small finds from Sarmizegetusa

Post CIMRM discoveries:

mithraeum in Municipium Septimium Apulense discovered in 2008. Still under research. Unpublished. Short report here.

Haynes 2005, 38-45: altar dedicated to Deus Invictus (possibly Mithras) found in the territory of the Colonia Aurelia Apulensis.

AE 2010, 1369: inscription dedicated probably to Mithras or Sol Invictus. The nature of the divinity is still under debate (Cluj-Napoca)

Sicoe 2014, cat. nr.22. Statue base in marmor dedicated to Cautopates (Colonia Aurelia Apulensis, discovered in 2003). No photo published yet.

Szabó 2015: torso and head of Cautes (from the conurbation of Apulum, found in secondary position in 2014).

Szabó et al. 2016: votive column dedicated to Mithras by a well known worshiper. Article in press.
