Mons Graupius

(276 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[English version] Die röm. Invasion in Ost-Schottland unter Iulius [II 3] Agricola führte 82 oder 83 n.Chr. röm. Truppen über den Isthmus von Forth und Clyde hinaus (Tac. Agr. 29,2-38,2; [1]). Im Gegensatz zu den Volksstämmen im südl. Schottland waren die Caledonii nördl. des Isthmus sehr viel gefährlichere Gegner. Sie wurden von Calgacus, der wohl von den Clans zum Anführer gewählt worden war, gegen die Römer geführt. Zuerst wich er den Legionen aus; als aber der röm. Vormarsch durch die Küsteneb…

Caledonii

(177 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[English version] Der Name C. wird von ant. Autoren unterschiedlich angewandt: auf die Einwohner Schottlands nördl. der Linie Forth-Clyde (Tac. Agr. 25), auf einen Stamm in der Region des Great Glen (Ptol. 2,3,8) und auf einen Stammesverband in Nord-Schottland (Cass. Dio 76,12). Daß bei Tac. Agr. 27 von Caledonia und Plin. nat. 4,102 von silvae Caledoniae die Rede ist, legt die Annahme nahe, daß die C. in einem großen Gebiet Ost-Schottlands siedelten. Wenig bekannt vor der röm. Invasion, leisteten sie heftigen Widerstand, bevor sie 84 n.Chr. am Mons…

[English version] Dieser Ort ist auf folgenden Karten verzeichnet: Britannia | Britannia | Straßen (h. Silchester). Das eisenzeitliche oppidum, Hauptort der Atrebates [2], entwickelte sich seit 100 v.Chr. zu einem bed. polit. Zentrum. Durch die Verbindungen des Commius erlebte die Ansiedlung Mitte 1.Jh. v.Chr. einen Aufschwung. C.A. dürfte nach 43 n.Chr. in das Reich des Cogidubnus einbezogen worden sein. Die frühe röm. Stadt wurde innerhalb der eisenzeitlichen Verteidigungsanlagen errichtet [1]. Die Entwicklung …

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[English version] (oder Magni). Röm. Kastell am Hadrians-Wall in Nordengland (Not. dign. occ. 40,43; Geogr. Rav. 107,11) wohl aus flavischer Zeit (69-96 n.Chr.), h. Carvoran, inschr. lokalisiert ( numerus Magn(c)es(ium) [1. 1825]), evtl. Teil der traianischen Grenzlinie im frühen 2. Jh., bevor M. nach 122 n.Chr. in den hadrianischen Limes eingefügt wurde [2. 192-196]. Ausnahmsweise wurde das Kastell nicht in das vallum eingegliedert, sondern verblieb südl. davon. Unter Hadrianus und später war die cohors I Hamiorum hier stationiert, bis zum 3. Jh. durch die cohors II Delmat…

Britannia

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[English version] A. Name Urspr. war die Insel unter dem Namen Albion geläufig (Avien. ora maritima 108f. geht wohl auf Pytheas, ca. 325 v.Chr. zurück). In den ältesten griech. Quellen erscheint B. als Βρεταννικαὶ νῆσοι ( Bretannikaí nḗsoi), die Einwohner als Βρεττανοί ( Brettanoí, Strab. 2,1,18; 2,5,12). Bei lat. Autoren ist die Form B. seit dem 1.Jh. v.Chr. üblich (Caes. Gall. 2,4,7ff.; 4,20ff.; 5,2ff.; Cic. fam. 7,6ff.). Der Oberbegriff für die Insel ist eine Schöpfung klass. Autoren [1].

Habitancum

(113 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[English version] Römisches Lager beim h. Risingham (Northumberland), einer der Vorposten nördl. des Hadrianswalls im Tal des Rede. Die frühen Phasen der Besetzung liegen im Dunkeln; es gibt keinen Beweis dafür, daß das Fort zur selben Zeit wie der hadrianische Grenzwall gebaut wurde. Ein Lager existierte sicher in den 140er J.; in severischer Zeit war es ein Hauptstützpunkt der Besetzung des Nordens. Die Garnison von H. war im 2. Jh. die cohors IIII Gallorum, im 3. Jh. die cohors I Vangionum, begleitet von einem numerus exploratorum und einer vexillatio Raetorum Gaesatorum. Im Inn…

Mons Graupius

(294 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] The Roman invasion of eastern Scotland under Iulius [II 3] Agricola brought Roman troops across the isthmus between the Forth and Clyde in AD 82 or 83 (Tac. Agr. 29,2-38,2; [1]). In contrast to the tribes of southern Scotland, the Caledonii to the north of the isthmus were very much more dangerous opponents. They were led against the Romans by Calgacus, who had probably been elected commander by the clans. He first evaded the legions, but, when the Roman advance made progress acro…

Margidunum

(184 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] On the great Roman road of the Fosse Way between Lincoln and Leicester lay various Roman settlements; one of the largest was M., near East Bridgeford, Nottinghamshire. Originally a Roman fort (late Claudian/early Neronian period), abandoned in around AD 70 [1; 2]. M. probably served as a military supply base, since the local iron ore was intensively smelted. After the end of the military occupation, the civilian settlement continued on both sides of the Fosse Way, possibly in conjunction with a mansio (or mutatio). Residential and other buildings were modest. Th…

Ictis

(143 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] British island connected to the mainland at low tide where, according to Diod. Sic. 5,22,2, the inhabitants of Belerion (Land's End in south-west-Britain) sold Tin from their mines - this was the beginning of the tin trade between Britannia and the Mediterranean region. The location of I. is still under debate. Possibilities include St. Michael's Mount in Mounts Bay, Cornwall [1. 176], which is connected to the mainland at low tide, and Mount Batten in the Plymouth Sound, Devon, w…

Durovernum

(150 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] This item can be found on the following maps: Theatre | | Britannia | Britannia Modern Canterbury; arose in the form of an Iron Age oppidum on the Stour in the late 1st cent. BC. The Roman city developed shortly after AD 43, perhaps revealing the pre-Roman character of the tribes of Cantion (Kent). Public buildings were erected in the late 1st and early 2nd cents. A large theatre was added in the late 2nd cent. [1]; defensive works were built in the late 3rd cent. An extra muros Christian church, probably from the 4th cent., survived until c. AD 700 (Bede, Hist. Eccl. 1,26). A…

Magnae

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] (or Magni). Roman fort on Hadrian's Wall in northern England (Not. Dign. Occ. 40,43; Geogr. Rav. 107,11), probably dating to the Flavian period (AD 69-96), modern Carvoran, identified because of epigraphical evidence ( numerus Magn(c)es(ium) [1. 1825]). In the early 2nd cent., before M. became part of the Hadrianic Limes after AD 122, it may have been part of Trajan's border line [2. 192-196]. The fort was not integrated into the vallum as was usually the case, but remained situated to the south. Under Hadrian and after him, the cohors I Hamiorum was stationed there unt…

Cantiaci

(107 words)

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] Tribe in the area of Kent and East Sussex. Its name is derived from the region of Cantium. Caes. B Gall. 5,22,1 tells of four indigenous kings; this account allows the conclusion that there were a number of sub-tribes. The tribal centre was  Durovernum, also important was Durobrivae (modern Rochester). Numerous villae were built in C. in the early Imperial Age, especially in eastern and southern Kent. In the 3rd cent.,  Rutupiae,  Dubrae, Regulbium (modern Reculver) and  Portus Lemanae (modern Lympne) were garrisons of the classis Britannica. Todd, Malcolm (Exeter) Bib…

Dubrae

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] Modern Dover, was of great importance during the period of Roman occupation of  Britannia, as a port and coastal fortress. The first-rate port may well have been used during the invasion of AD 43. A fort was built in the late 2nd cent. to accommodate a unit of the classis Britannica [1]. The fort was replaced in the late 3rd cent. by a coastal fortress as protection against the Saxons. Parts of the docks and the moles have been discovered in the port area of Dover. A well preserved Roman lighthouse on East Hill, octagonal in the …

Tintagel

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] A headland on the northern coast of Cornwall, for a long time connected with King Arthur and his court. Limited settlement in the late Roman period was followed by more intensive settlement from the late 5th cent. AD onwards with many imports from the eastern Mediterranean, particularly amphorae and fine pottery. At that time T. was evidently the residence of the kings of the Dumnonii.

Orcades

Author(s): Todd, Malcolm (Exeter)
[German version] (Ὀρκάδες/ Orkádes, Latin Orcades). The archipelago of Orkney (today c. 70 islands, of which 24 are inhabited) off the north coast of Scotland probably first came to the attention of the ancients through Pytheas (late 4th cent. BC). According to ancient authors, there were between 30 (Mela 3,54; Ptol. 2,3,31) and 40 (Plin. HN 4,103) only sparsely inhabited islands. The fleet of Iulius [II 3] Agricola (Tac. Agr. 10) reconnoitred the O. in AD 83/4. Some of the O. were known to Ptolemy (…
