Abstract
A drawing of Ferdinando de Marsigli presented a number of three Roman Forts in Romula at the end of the 17th century. Some military units attested by inscriptions and stamps were stationed there for a time, or were temporarily relocated there.
In this article, we present a lot of six stamped bricks and tiles. Most of them, with the characters as SV SAG and NS, may be attributed to Numerus Surorum Sagittariorum, which was the military unit of the city from the middle of the 2nd century AD until the beginning of the 3rd century AD. The other ones, with the characters CR, could be attributed to a military unit of Civium Romanorum, which replaced the numerus at the beginning of the 3rd century AD.

Keywords
Roman Period, stamp, brick, tile, military unit.
