  Article:   THE HISTORICAL NAMES OF THE DACIANS AND THEIR MEMORY: NEW DOCUMENTS AND A PRELIMINARY OUTLOOK.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  This study will focus on a domain quite subject to controversy: the names of the Dacian kings in the literary sources (with the problem of their localization and chronology) and the Dacian names in general. After (1) a concise display of the sources, with their peculiarities and limits, this paper seeks to lay emphasis on the new discoveries, then (2) to analyze the names of the Dacian kings and chiefs, in order (3) to compare them with the names of Dacian individuals attested all over the Roman Empire and to discuss those characters (popular or historical), and finally (4) to focus on the case of the king Decibalus, the Dacian historical name par excellence.
