Roman milestone at the Jochenstein Danube power station

Engelhartszell, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • Suitable for groups

This replication of the lost Roman milestone from the 3th century AD was reconstructed after old templates and positioned at the “Donau-Landesausstellungs-Weg” path by the Jochenstein Run-of-River Plant. Decades ago the inscription of the ancient Roman milestone was copied and is the only remain of the whole stone. The milestone, likely from the time of the emperor Caracalla, was supposedly destroyed during the 18th century- only its measures and inscription are known.
The reading and translation of the inscription, from which only six copies exist, says after Gerhard Winkler: IMPERATOR CAESAR MARCVS AVRELIVS ANTONINVS PIVS FELIX AVGVSTVSPARTHICVS MAXIMVS BRITTANICVS MAXIMVS TRIBVNICA POSTESTATE VX IMPERATOR III CONSVL DESIGNATVS IIII VIAM IVXTA AMNEMDANVVIVM FIERI IVSSIT A BOIIDVRO IN some uninterpretable letters follow MILIA PASSVVM XV.
