Site of the Assembly [ edit ]
Karl Patsch's opinion that the Assembly of the province Moesia Superior sat at Remesiana, based upon the fact that some inscriptions were discovered, "inaugurated between 202 and 209 by Ulpiana in honour of Septimius Severus and Julia Augusta," is not correct. [1 ]
Septimius Severus [ edit ]
One can see in a recently discovered inscription of identical content
that these inscriptions were inaugurated in 202. However, that year Septimius Severus returned from the east to Rome and probably passed through Remesiana and on that occasion the inscriptions were inaugurated. [2 ]
Remesiana is a
Roman Catholic titular See. [3 ]
