The Bellum Batonianum in contemporary historiographical narratives

in a search for the post-modern Bato the Daesitiate

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This work examines small but significant aspects of the Bellum Batonianum. In particular it focuses on the perception of the war in the more recent historiography; also, it analyses impositions of modern constructions and perspectives on the past. Furthermore, it discusses the identity of Bato the Daesitiate in light of the most recent studies of identity of non-Mediterranean elite members from his times in the early Principate. This study attempts to contribute to the better understanding of the early stages of the process of so-called uRomanization" in the hinterland of Roman Dalmatia and southern Pannonia.
