Newly-Discovered Traces of the Roman Naissus–Ratiaria Road and the Problem of Locating Two Timacum Stations

The goal of this paper is to reopen the question of and propose a solution to the as yet unresolved problem of the exact location of the Timacum stations on the Naissus-Ratiaria itinerary road. Based on plentiful material evidence,it seeks to draw a more reliable picture of the Roman itinerary road and its newly-discovered traces. Also, it points to the possibility of a completely new interpretation of the itinerary sources relating to this issue.The method adopted here relies on the data contained in the Roman itineraries as well as on the archaeological and epigraphic evidence.
