Gaius Silvius Auspex

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gaius Silvius Auspex was a member of the Roman knighthood ( Eques ) living in the 2nd century AD .

An inscription found at the Blatobulgium fort and dated 158/161 shows that Auspex was prefect of the Cohors II Tungrorum milliaria equitata cl , which was stationed in the province of Britannia .

Two dedicatory inscriptions were found near Blatobulgium , on which Auspex is listed as prefect of the unit. The inscriptions were made by members of two different tribes who served in the cohort. One inscription was made by Raetern ( cives Raeti ), while the second inscription was dedicated to the deity Viradecdis by Condruser ( pagus Condrustis ) .
