Abstract

A tombstone of a legionary centurion found in Ankara proves to be of wider and greater significance than was originally recognised. Not only does it offer valuable evidence for early local recruitment patterns into the Roman legions, but, more importantly, it supplies the fifth recorded reference in the entire Roman Empire for a collegium veteranorum, a fraternity of army veterans; and the fourth known record in the whole epigraphic corpus for the albata decursio, or 'white parade uniform'. /// Ankara'da bulunmuş olan bir lejyoner centuria komutanina (subay) ait mezar taşinin başlangiçta tahmin edildiğinden daha da önemli olduğu ortaya çikmiştir. Bu mezar taşi, Roma lejyonlarina, sanildiğindan daha erken zamanlarda yerli asker alindiği bilgisini içermektedir. Ayrica bu mezar taşi tüm Roma İmparatorluğu'nda collegium veteranorum (emekli askerler kulübü) hakkinda kaydedilmiş olan beşinci belgeyi oluşturmakta ve tüm yazitlar içerisinde bilinen dördüncü örnek olan albata decursio (beyaz tören üniformasi) ödülünün kayitlarini içermektedir.
