Commentary: Roman Military Diploma. Though this diploma was awarded well after the cut off date of 161 CE, it is included for the sake of completeness: it is the latest known diploma from Syria Palaestina, was the only diploma discovered within the province itself, and all other diplomas precede the 161 CE cut-off date.
