abstract

The remaining fragments of this inscription, which constitute a translation from Latin to the Greek north-west koine, retain some valuable terms of the treaty which Rome concluded with the Aetolian League in 212/211 BC, with the purpose of forming an alliance against the Macedonian king, Philip V. This epigraphic text is a fundamental source, not only to obtain an accurate analysis of the diplomatic and military events of the so-called First Macedonian War, but also to understand the complicated development of the political and military relations between Romans and Greeks (in particular Aetolians), especially in the period which goes from the Hannibalic war to the coming of Rome in the Hellenistic world.
