The main aim of this book is to examine the careers of praefecti classium during the Principate. Although the Roman imperial navy has been the subject of much research, few publications deal with the question of fleet commanders. (...) The first part of the book presents general remarks concerning the Roman imperial navy, with a special focus on the provincial flotillas. The second, analytical part of the book presents the prosopography of fleet prefects. Every praefectus classis is treated separetely - in alphabetical order. In all the biographies the same order of information has been preserved: sources, bibliography, cursus honorum, origin, family relations, remarks.
