The tombstone of the Roman centurion Titus Comenius Severus from the 1st century CE. The object was found in ancient Sirmium (now Sremska Mitrovica, in northern Serbia).
The inscription on the stone says that the deceased Romans was decorated with corona vallaris – a wreath made of gold, which was decorated with palisades (valli) and handed to the first who break into the enemy’s shafts. The object is located in the museum of Sremska Mitrovica.
