Chronological Period considered in thesis was determined by dating of inscriptions found in nowadays Senj and nearby site of mountain saddle Vratnik (1st-3rd century AD). Entire thesis was based on 18 epigraphic monuments and information contained within them. Primary purpose was to find information about nationality and/or homeland of certain person and its origin and determine how is information about nationality and homeland expressed on epigraphic monuments of Roman Senia. If there weren't any explicit information about those items on epigraphic monument itself, assumption of origin was made from implicit indicators (name form, social status, honours, cult worshiping etc): in case even those indicators weren’t present in inscription, information was drawn from contemporary literature relevant for the subject of this thesis. In case of only four individuals place of origin or nationality could be determined from inscriptions (Aurelius Dionisius, Lucius Aurelius Victor, Iustus Neapolitanus and Marcus Claudius Stratonicus); for other ethnicity was assumed: eight were believed to be of autochton origin (Lucius Gavius Optatus, Gavia Maxima, Lucius Calpurnius Maximus, Muttiena Maxima, Quarta Livia, Silicia Ditueio, Asellio and aforementioned Lucius Aurelius Victor), further nine of Greek and/or Oriental origin (Lucius Valerius Agathopus, Hermes, Faustus, Sarmentius Geminus, Marcus Gnorius Satyrus, Gnoria Secundina, Verridia Psyche, Marcus Claudius Stratonicus and Marcus Claudius Marcianus) and twelve individuals were assumed to be of Italic origin (Valeria Montana, Titus Iulius Saturninus, Caius Antonius Rufus, Cariena, Lucius Valerius Priscus, Veratia Paula, Gessia Maxima, Flavia Procula, Iustus Neapolitanus, Aurelius Secundus and father and son bearing the same name, Valerius Valerianus). Nationality was mentioned only once and homeland was pointed out in only four cases: those numbers lead to conclusion that information about those terms weren’t very important or appreciated in Roman Senia. There are many more mentions of social status, cult worshiping, honours and functions within community than they are about nationality and homeland; all of those were more important for people of Senia to inscribe on their monuments than persons provenance was.
