Marins phrygiens au service de Rome sous le Haut‑Empire

Abstract : ‪Five sailors coming from Phrygia were able to be listed during the Early Empire. The knight Caius Iulius Alexander led successfully, under the reign of Severus Alexander, a ‪‪reliquatio‪‪ of the fleets of Misenum and Ravenna, which supported the Persian campaign of the emperor. Philippus the Arab named him prefect of the first one. Four others were simple sailors, among whom two died before the end of their time of service. The third one was freed with the ‪‪honesta missio‪‪, while he was removed to Carnuntum. The last one was integrated into the legion ‪‪I Adiutrix‪‪. The commitment in the navy, even long and thankless, was for simple sailors a hope to escape a very mediocre social condition in Phrygia. They benefited of a decent and regular salary, even if two only lived for a long time to obtain the roman citizenship. ‪
