Palilia 20: Catalogue of the architectural remains

The catalogue of architectural remains presents especially archaeological records to the castra praetoria, the castra peregrina and to the castra nova equitum singularium. The remained troops' accommodations are poorly preserved or only represented by a few entries. It's because in many cases there is no excavation report or they were not accessible. The catalogue considers the finds and findings which originate from the area of each camp as well as from the immediate surroundings.
The surrounding defence of the castra praetoria is only described accurately, when peculiarities were discovered during the object's survey and if not mentioned in the detailed description of Lucos Cozza (Cozza, Mura). The altitudes given in the catalogue texts refer to the respective run level at the time of excavation. The original run level often can not be reconstructed to an absolute height because the natural course of the terrain within the camp is uncertain and the referenced altitudes as well as the calculated daily heights are lacking.
The associated finds are attached to the relevant archaeological records.

The catalog numbers follow a fixed numbering scheme, which is composed of an abbreviation for the particular camp and of two numbers separated by a dot (eg CP 1.14). The first number represents the feature category (1 = surrounding defense), the second for the actual finding (14 = finding). In this way the feature numbers can be clearly distinguished from the catalog numbers of the grave monuments.

Abbreviation of urban roman camps:
CP = castra praetoria
CPE = castra peregrina
CPES = castra priora equitum singularium
CNES = castra nova equitum singularium
SCV = stationes cohortium vigilum
ECV = excubitoria cohortium vigilum

Categories of findings:
1 = Surrounding defence
2 = Building
3 = Infrastructure
4 = Not determinable findings
5 = Findings with no longer known exact location
6 = Findings surrounding the camp
