APPENDIX 8
GERMANY, SPAIN, BRITAIN (AND AFRICAN AUXILIA)

The northwestern regions of the Roman Empire lacked the Latin epigraphic habit in its full detail. There are fewer military epitaphs, and fewer of them give both age at death and commemorator. For the Germanies, Germania Superior and Germania Inferior are treated as one region, because so many of the epitaphs come from Mogontiacum, near the border of the two. Epitaphs from the auxilia in the Germanies and from Spain and Britain tend to not name a commemorator, or if they do name a commemorator they do not give age at death. Hence the information from these epitaphs is not very useful. Where commemorator is given (e.g. in epitaphs from German and Spanish legions), the same chronological patterns appear (marriage rate increases in second and third century).
