Lista regală a Daciei Magna: un model extins (II)


The royal list reveals an institutional continuity in the case of the other autochthonous kingdom in Dacia Magna. This kingdom revolved around Sarmizegetusa, whose history as a state covers “only” three centuries. The main amendments to the Daicoviciu model are the integration of the Rubobostes precedent and the re-positioning of Cotiso as Deceneu’s successor. Among the issues revealed by the royal list are the mechanism of the succession to the throne, the privileged relationship with the Dionysiac priests or the status of the Getic kingdom after Dapyx was defeated and Rholes started his secessionist manoeuvres.
