Bericus

(72 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[English version] Britanne, dessen Hilfegesuch Kaiser Claudius 43 n.Chr. den Vorwand zur Invasion der Insel lieferte (Cass. Dio 60,19,1). B. dürfte identisch sein mit Verica, der auf seinen Münzen (südl. Themse im Gebiet der Atrebates; Münzstätte ist Calleva/Silchester) als rex und Sohn des Commius erscheint. Auf Grund ihrer Fundplätze und Motive (u.a. Weinblatt) wird Verica eine romfreundliche anticatuvellaunische Politik unterstellt. Cunobellinus; Catuvellauni Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam) Bibliography S. Frere, Britannia, 31987, 27-47.

Cassivellaunus

(90 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] Britannic king north of the Thames. In 54 BC commander in chief of the Britannic troops against Caesar upon whom C's guerilla tactics inflicted heavy losses. After the fall of the  Trinovantes and four other tribes, Caesar succeeded in advancing to C.'s oppidum. With the mediation of the Atrebate  Commius a peace treaty was signed that placed the Trinovantes under the protection of Rome and agreed upon the giving of hostages and a tribute ( vectigal) (Caes. B Gall. 5,11,8; 18,1ff.; Cic. Att. 4,18,5). Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)

Bericus

(91 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] The Briton whose appeal for help gave Emperor Claudius the pretext for invading the island in AD 43 (Cass. Dio 60,19,1). B. might be identical with Verica, who appears on his coins (south of the Thames in the region of the  Atrebates; Calleva/Silchester is the place of minting) as rex and son of  Commius. By virtue of their place of discovery and their motifs (i.a., a vine leaf) Verica is represented as having had a Rome-friendly, anti-Catuvellauni policy.  Cunobellinus;  Catuvellauni Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam) Bibliography S. Frere, Britannia, 31987, 27-47.

Caratacus

(96 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] Britannic king and military commander, son of  Cunobellinus; between AD 43 and 51, he organized, initially together with his brother Togodumnus, the resistance against the Claudian invasion force. After the occupation of the south-east, C. transferred his operational basis to the  Silures and  Ordovices in Wales. Following his defeat in 51, he fled to  Cartimandua, who handed him over to Rome. In 52, he was part of Claudius' triumphal procession, together with his wife, children and brothers; Claudius later pardoned C. (Tac. Ann. 12,33ff.). Kunst, Christiane (Pot…

Cartimandua

(139 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] British client queen of the  Brigantes, a confederation of tribes in the north of the province. In AD 51, she demonstrated her loyalty to Rome by handing over  Caratacus (Tac. Ann. 12,36; Hist. 3,45). Because of their dependance on a stable northern border, several provincial governors intervened in C.'s favour in internal Brigantian conflicts: in 48 P. Ostorius Scapula (Tac. Ann. 12,32,2), and A. Didius Gallus between 52-57 [1. 48f., 231] (Ann. 12,40) by dispatching auxiliary coh…

Sacrum Imperium

(2,738 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam) [German version] A. Imperial Designation (CT) The imperial designation Sacrum Imperium (S.I.) was first officially used by the Hohenstaufen chancellery of Emperor Frederick I in Italy in March 1157 (MGH legum sectio IV, vol. 1, constitutiones et acta publica imperatorum et regum 1, ed. L. Weiland, Hannover 1893, p. 224, l. 19 = Constitutio Friderici I 161) on the occasion of the call for a campaign against Milan, without displacing the titles imperium or imperium Romanum. The new designation "retained loose but consistent currency in the Hohens…

Arthur

(239 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] (Artus). The question of historical authenticity has been made more difficult due to the creation of the legend that began as early as the 10th cent. ( annales Cambriae). The overlap of the Arthurian tradition with the history of the Anglo-Saxons in Britain makes it probable that Arthur was an army commander who obtained a regional position of power due to his successes against the Saxons at the end of the 5th cent. AD. However, it remains unclear to which region of Britain this protection referred. The mention of A. in the Welsh poem Gododdin (early sections originated ar…

Boudicca

(183 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] British ruler, widow of  Prasutagus, client king of the  Iceni. In AD 60 [1. 56] B. led a bloody revolt (Tac. Ann. 14,31ff.; Agr. 15f.; Cass. Dio Epit. 62,1ff.) against Rome, devastated the Colonia Camulodunum and the cities of Verulamium and Londinium. The legate of the ninth legion, Q.  Petillius Cerialis, suffered a severe defeat. The cause of the revolt was the ill-considered behaviour of the procurator, Decianus Catus, who after Prasutagus' death harshly confiscated the prope…

Tasciovanus

(101 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] King in Britannia. According to coin evidence, between c. 20/15 BC and 5/10 AD his area of influence was in Herfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire to the east of the Cherwell, Middlesex, northeastern Surrey, and in Essex together with that of Addedomarus. The main site of minting was Verulamium (Saint Albans), only few coins are from Camulodunum. On a number of them the Celtic RIGONUS appears as the equivalent of REX on the coins of the Atrebates [2].

Allectus

(161 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] IMP(erator) C(aius) Allectus P(ius) F(elix) INV(ictus) AUG(ustus) in Britannia. A.'s early career is unknown. Right hand ( satelles) and accountant ( rationalis summae rei; Aur. Vict. Caes. 39,41; Eutr. 9,22,2) of  Carausius. In AD 293 after Carausius' murder immediately after the loss of the fleet support base Gesoriacum/Boulogne, promotion to Augustus (Pan. Lat. 8 [5],12,2). Aurelius Victor's telling (loc. cit.) suggests financial irregularities, which drove A. to usurpation. The transition was relati…

Cunobellinus

(123 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] Briton king ( Britannorum rex, Suet. Calig. 44) between c. AD 10-40/43. Son of  Tasciovanus. The interpretation of his coins reveals that C., starting from Verulamium, succeeded in gaining control over most of south-east Britain and in establishing his rule in Camulodunum in the region of the  Trinovantes (Essex) without provoking Roman intervention. His death may well have changed the situation, as the primary goal of the Claudian invasion (AD 43) was to conquer the kingdom of C. (Cass. D…

Venutius

(176 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] British prince, husband of the client queen Cartimandua; he struggled with her for supremacy over the Brigantes. The description in Tac. Ann. 12,40,2-4 suggests that the destabilisation of the kingdom happened as early as the time of A. Didius [II 2] Gallus (AD 52-57), but was brought under control by repeated interventions by Roman troops. No later than AD 69, the situation reversed when the queen officially separated from V. in favour of Vellocatus, probably in a miscalculation …

Prasutagus

(158 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
[German version] British client king of the Iceni; husband of Boudicca (from before AD 45). May have been one of the eleven kings subjugated by Claudius [III 1] in AD 43 (CIL VI 920 = ILS 216); it is likelier, however, that his loyalty to Rome led to his being installed as (sole?) client king during the revolt of the Iceni in AD 48 (Tac. Ann. 12,31) in place of the king SAEMV attested on coins [1. 433]. P.' attempt to secure the kingdom after his death (AD 59) by pronouncing the Emperor Nero his heir alongside his own daughters failed (Tac. Ann. 14.31).

[German version] Britannic client king (CIL VII 11: rex magnus Britanniae [1]) in Sussex (originally possibly king of the  Atrebates), who had authority over several civitates up to the Flavian period (Tac. Agr. 14,1) and presumably was among the 11 kings subjugated by Claudius (CIL VI 31537d). Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam) Bibliography 1 J. E. Bogaers, King C. in Chichester, in: Britannia 10, 1979, 243-254. A. A. Barrett, The Career of Tib. Claudius C., in: Britannia 10, 1979, 227-242.

Imperium

(4,514 words)

Author(s): Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam)
Kunst, Christiane (Potsdam) [German version] A. Antiquity (CT) Dealing with the concept of imperium in terms of its reception began in the Roman Republic [22; 37]. To its original meaning (authority of Roman magistrates) was added first of all the element of dominion ( imperium populi Romani: Cic. Rep. 3,24), which soon acquired a Roman notion of world domination ( imperium sine fine: Verg. Aen. 1,279ff; 6,851 ff.). In the Principate the range of meaning extended to area of domination. From roughly the middle of the 1st cent., the expression imperium Romanum (initially Sall. Catil. 10…

[German version] One of the Caledonian leaders ( dux) in the battle at mons Graupius (possibly north of Aberdeen) in the late summer of AD 84, which gained Agricola the triumphalia ornamenta (Tac.
