Description

One of the few written monuments that proves the presence of Romans in Central Europe is the Roman inscription dating from 179 AD. The inscription is carved into the castle rock in Trenčín and is traditionally considered to be the most important inscription that has been preserved in its original place.

Votive Latin inscription on the rock of Trenčín Castle announces the victory of the Roman 2nd auxiliary legion over the Germans during military expeditions led by Emperors Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus against the tribes of the Markomans and the Quads.

The Roman inscription "VICTORIAE AVGSTORV EXERCITUS QVI LAV GARICIONE SEDIT MIL L II DCCCLV MAXIMIANUS LEG II AD CVR F" can only be seen from the summer terrace of the Hotel Elizabethor the hotel restaurant.
