Un soldat de la cohors I Lusitanorum à Didymoi : du nouveau sur l’inscription I.Kanaïs 59 bis.

A graffito incised on a brick from the hypocaust at Didymoi, found in 2000, has turned out to be a very close parallel to I.Kanais 59bis. It has thus become possible to supplement the name of the soldier, Vettius Crispinus, who wrote both inscriptions and to be certain of the provenance. I.Kanais 59bis has successively been thought to come from Contrapollinopolis Magna and from Al-Kanayis. Now we know that it, too, came from Didymoi.
