The author analyses the inscriptions from the province with the formula pro salute
imperatoris. This can not be taken as a proof of imperial cult, but of loyalty to the
imperial power. It is interesting to notice the geographic and chronologic distribution
of the documents, from which we see that they come mainly from official ambiences,
connected to imperial property or army. Anyway are worth remarking also documents
erected by private people or municipalities who related their welfare with that of the
emperor. The biggest concentration of testimonies is under the Severian dynasty, as
already verified elsewhere.
Keywords: Roman Dalmatia, epigraphy, imperial family, imperial property, loyalty.
