Abstract. Synthesis of the investigation about Salacia: the cause of its Roman designation, the interest of the researchers throughout time, the important strategic and economic position of the town (the family of the Cornelli Bocchi, emission of money…). Additionally, this synthesis includes the reanalysis of uncommon epigraphic texts: the dedication of a flaminica to I. O. M. (IRCP 183), the consecration of Vicanus Bouti filius to the Emperor August (IRCP 184), the significant presence of the Greek names and of a tabella defixionis where the power of Hercules and Atis are invoked.
Keywords: Salacia, Cornelii Bocchi, imperial cult, tabella defixionis.
