GALICEA MARE Dolj, Romania.

An important Roman vicus 10 km from statio Aquensis. A stone statue of a lion was discovered here, a monetary deposit of 800 coins (Antoninus Pius—Philip I) in a vase buried during the period of the Carpic invasion of 245-47, and a votive altar. An inscription is dedicated to Diana regina by Dioscurus Ianuari and his wife (contubernalis). He was probably a servus villicus of Iulius Ianuarius (157-69), an Illyrian customs farmer. The vicus was integrated in the large agricultural territorium of which Aquae was the capital.

The finds are preserved in the Museum of Craiova.
