The paper presents new information on ten governors of the province of Thrace from the early second century AD to the Tetrarchic period. Examination of recently found inscriptions, revision of previous readings, and comparison of epigraphic and literary sources enable us to identify several unknown governors and to propose more precise chronology for others.
