Plaque confirming demobilization and granting Roman citizenship
Plaque confirming demobilization and granting Roman citizenship

A plate made of bronze, which served as confirmation of the demobilization of a Roman soldier of auxilia and granting him, in exchange for faithful service, Roman citizenship. The property is located in the Colchester Museum in the East of England.

Auxilia were recruited exclusively from provincial people who did not have Roman citizenship. The soldier serving in auxilia usually received Roman citizenship upon the termination of service, which has become the rule since Claudius.
