The Roman camp at Dura-Europos was founded in the early third century C.E. and housed detachments of several legions. The excavations did not identify the camp’s assumed separate wall. Large quantities of inscriptions and other material remains were found, mainly in the praetorium; C. Hopkins and H.T. Rowell, “The Praetorium,” in M. Rostovzeff et al., The Excavations at Dura-Europos 5 (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1934), pp. 201–234.
