Annotation

 

The winter camp of Laugaricio (modern-day Trenčín) lies near the northernmost line of the Roman hinterlands, the Limes Romanus. This was where the Auxiliary of Legion II fought and prevailed in a decisive battle over the Quadi tribe in 179 AD. Laugaricio, not far from the modern Poland-Slovakia border, is the most northern remains of the presence of Roman soldiers in central Europe.

 
Soldiers of the II auxiliary legion carved a inscription on the rock below today's castle. It reads: 
VICTORIAE AUGUSTORUM EXERCITUS, QUI LAUGARICIONE SEDIT, MIL(ITES) L(EGIONES) II DCCCLV. (MAXIMI)ANUS LEG(ATUS LEG)IONIS II AD(IUTRICIS) CUR(AVIT) F(ACIENDUM) 
 
(Done by 855 Legionaries of the Augustus victorious army, who are stationed in Laugaricio. Done under supervision of Maximus legatus of II legion.)1
