In the year 213 A.D., after defeating the Germans (Alamanns), Caracalla headed for the East by the end of September-beginning of October. According to recent epigraphical evidence, by December of the same year the Emperor was already staying in Nicomedia (17. Dec. 213). The geographical name Raetia mentioned in the itinerary of the Historia Augusta (v. Ant. Caracalla V. 4), deranging the correct order of events could be Ratiaria in the original text. After analysing again the data supplied by the auctors it seems possible that the emperor did not visit Dacia of Traianus during the short time available but only managed issues regarding the province from Ratiaria located in his time at Moesia Superior, but during the period of the formation of the Historia Augusta was in fact inside the territory of Dacia of Aurelianus.
