Hasan MALAY  Marijana RICL   611–616


Abstract: The article is a publication of two new Greek inscriptions from Thyateira and Hiero­kaisareia, both dating from the Roman Imperial period. The new inscription from Thyateira contains the first epigraphical attestation of the Roman senator Domitius Florus previously known only from a short reference in Dio Cassius, while the new inscription from Hierokaisareia honours a previously unattested Asiarch.

Keywords: Thyateira; Hierokaisareia; Domitius Florus; Asiarch; honorary decrees.
