Abstract

This thesis is devoted to the phenomenon of urbanization and municipalization of Moesia Inferior, a Danubian province of the Roman Empire (today northern Bulgaria and Romanian Dobrudja). Through epigraphical and archaeological sources, this work analyzes the social, administrative and religious framework of six Latin-speaking cities founded along the Lower Danube: Oescus, Novae, Durostorum, Tropaeum Traiani, Troesmis, Noviodunum. The work consists of two main sections: after a first part dedicated to the history of the province, a second section is devoted to the cities. It has been possible to define the origin and the development of urban communities, their population, the social, political, and economic relations with Western Pontic Greek cities and other Danubian provinces, the relationship between Romans and indigenous people, the contribution of immigrants and soldiers, the influence of imperial officials and of local ruling class, the process of acculturation and latinization.
