The paper consists of three parts: the ﬁrst one examining the
phases of the construction of Varvaria’s defense walls, the second
one presenting for the ﬁrst time the upper part of a Bribir stela
from the Archaeology Museum Zadar, and the last one examining
the purpose of the stone block with a Vespasian’s inscription, also
found in Bribir.
Exhibiting various approaches used in their construction,
Varvaria’s walls are the best example for studying the
development of defense fortiﬁcations in the Liburnian territory.
Complementing the literature on the phases of fortiﬁcation
construction, this paper elaborates on two phases – the one
preceding the phase the beginning of which is dated to the mid1st
century BC and the one that was built before the adaptation
in the Justinian period and has been recreated on the basis of a
comparative analysis of the western and eastern sections.
The stela from Archaeology Museum Zadar, depicting
a soldier, is part of the modest collection of stelae of this type
found on the Eastern Adriatic coast. It is a gabled stela the
inscribed part of which has not been preserved. The fragment
this paper is focused on contains a standing ﬁgure that, based on
its accouterments and the way it is depicted, could be dated to
the mid-1st century AD or the beginning of its second half.
Based on the available literature and the site where it was
found, the stone block with an inscription to Emperor Vespasian
(CIL III 10179), identiﬁed as a milestone that was destroyed in
the meantime, should be identiﬁed as an inscription erected to
honor an important event – possibly the adaptation of part of
the western wall from which it probably rolled away during one
of the devastations the wall had sustained.
