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.
