In his paper the author examines the sources on the date of Emperor Decius’ death based on the altar of Bölcske erected on the 11<sup>th</sup> of June 251. The altar is dedicated pro salute of the new emperors Trebonianus Gallus and Hositilanus and mentions the Decii as divi. Based on the length of Decius’ reign mentioned in the written sources the date of Decius’ death cannot be calculated. As the consecration of the Decii had to happen after a senates consult in Rome, the date of the battle at Abrittus must be dated latest middle of May 251.
