M. Sattonius Iucundus
Who is M. Sattonius Iucundus?
During an excavation in the Roman Thermae of Heerlen a whinstone was found, pointing to M. Sattonius Iucundus as restorer of the Thermae in the 3rd century, the stone explains he did this as a debt to Fortuna.
It is possible that he was the Marcus Sattonius who, around 253, as a centurion of the Third Legion in Algiers, erected a statue of Mars in honour of the legion. If this is true, at least it is speculated, he might have returned home, to his birth grounds in Coriovallum, a rich man after his time in the legion was over. And as a rich citizen he was able to secure a place in the city council of Xanten, the capital of civitas Traianensis, the Roman district to which Coriovallum belonged, which had a council of a hundred big landowners.
