Abstract:
There were Batavians serving in Britain from 43 onwards, and Civilis and his brother-in-law Briganticus may have seen action there Accounts of troops swimming rivers in the conquest period must refer to Batavians. The renown won by them in Britain referred to in Histories iv 12 must refer to the pre-Boudiccan period. Civilis's friendship with Vespasian may have been in Britain; the nomen Iulius may have been given to him by Gaius; the name of his brother-in-law may be derived from successful Plautian operations in the north. The four Batavian cohorts at Mons Graupius may have been re-formed from the disbanded eight cohorts of the 69 revolt. If they were milliary at Mons Graupius the question arises whether the eight were quingenary or milliary. BD
