Small but busy: the metallon of Tiberiane in the mid-second century

Vortrag von Diane Coomans (Berkeley) im Rahmen des Kolloquiums «Zur neueren Forschung in der Alten Geschichte» im FS 2022.

The small metallon of Tiberiane (Barud), surveyed in 1992, is located about ten kilometers as the crow flies southeast of Mons Claudianus. The praesidium is essentially a mini Claudianus, but it did not prevent it from being well inhabited and very busy in the mid-second century. The archives of the tabularius Athenodoros (c. 150-154), an official on duty at Mons Claudianus also in charge of the administration of the satellite, provide us with much information regarding the management of Tiberiane. During this lecture, I will present some of the conclusions I reached while working on these ostraca, including the officials in charge, a description of the workforce, the water supply and the daily water consumption at Tiberiane.
