This official military discharge comprising 2 inscribed bronze plates was a copy of a master held in Rome. It was issued by the Emperor Trajan to Reburrus, a Spanish junior officer (decurion) in the 1st Pannonian cavalry regoiment. The certificate was a precious possession that granted citizenship and the right to marry. From Malpas, Cheshire, circa 103 CE. (The British Museum, London)
