Keywords: Dacia & Dalmatia, onomastics, negotiatores, ordo decurionum, mobility & migration

This article corrects the reading of a Latin-inscribed tombstone from Roman imperial Salona in Dalmatia recently advanced in discussions of mobility, migration and trade in the north-eastern provinces. The revised reading enables a fresh exploration of some of the socio-historical interpretations proposed by earlier scholars, with particular regard to the question of the role of traders from the Empire’s eastern provinces in local civic life, and of the use of onomastics in modern analyses of a person’s ethnicity.
