Gods on the Danube

The Danubian provinces (in this case study we included Raetia, Noricum, Pannonia Superior, Pannonia Inferior, Moesia Superior, Moesia Inferior and Dacia) represents one of the largest macro-units of the Roman Empire. This region united numerous glocal groups from the Celtic world with the Illyrian, Hellenistic and Thracian worlds too. During the first three centuries A.D. the region became highly militarized and a very dynamic area, where military dislocations and commercial mobilities contributed to the formation of numerous religious appropriations and a great variety of forms of glocal religious communication.

This chapter presents the first comprehensive list of divinities attested in the rich epigraphic material of the above mentioned provinces (EDH: 5724, EDSC: 7327 inscriptions), completed with numerous figurative stone monuments from the major databases and catalogues (LIMC, CSIR, lupa.at, EPRO series and recent publications).
