Neue Inschriften aus Göynük und Mudurnu II

Filiz DÖNMEZ ÖZTÜRK Hüseyin Sami ÖZTÜRK     123–128

 

Abstract: The article presents 5 new inscriptions found in the vicinity of the vilayets Göynük and Mudurnu (province of Bolu) during a survey conducted in 2013 by Filiz Dönmez Öztürk. This area formed in Roman Imperial times part of the eastern territory of Nicaea as well as the part of the southwestestern territory of Claudioupolis. No. 1 is a dedication to Zeus Okonenos. The otherwise attested epitheton of the god is of Thracian origin and can be found as toponym (Ὀκαηνῶν κώμη) in the area of Taraklı not far from Göynük (INikaia 1201). The new dedication was erected by the Βολειναιων κώμη, a toponym unattested so far. No. 2 is the grave stone of Lucius Antonius Longus who obviously had the Roman citizenship. The grave altar no. 3 was set up by Veturia, daughter of Veturius, for herself and for her husband Nikephoros. The sepulchral inscription no. 4 mentions the couple Iulia (daugthter of Macer) and Philagros. The grave monument no. 5 was erected by Arabianos for his wife Iuliane.

Keywords: Nicaea; Bithynia; funerary inscriptions; anthroponyms.
