Miliario (milestone) da Mitra [Valverde – Evora]

Miliario da Mitra

Marco miliário anepígrafo da via romana que ligava Ebora Liberalitas Julia (Évora) a Salacia (Alcácer do Sal), provável troço do itinerário XII de Antonino que fazia a ligação entre Olisipo (Lisboa) e Augusta Eremita (Mérida). Apesar de anepígrafo a sua localização deverá corresponder à marcação da VII milha contada a partir de Évora.
Tem cerca de 1,30 m de altura e um diâmetro aproximado a 0,45 m. Desconhece-se a sua cronologia, no entanto apresenta similitudes com outros miliários da região, a maior parte datável do século II/III d.C.

Este monumento está integrado nos percursos de Monfurado, onde se podem apreciar vários locais e paisagens do Alentejo.

Percursos Monfurado

A milestone, without inscription, marking the Roman way which connected Ebora Liberalitas Julia (Évora) to Salacia (Alcácer do Sal). It is probably a fragment related to itinerary XII of Antoninus, who established the link between Olisipo (Lisboa) and Augusta Eremita (Mérida).
Although it bears no inscription, its location would have corresponded to mile VII from Évora.
It is about 1,30 meters in height and has a diameter of approximately 45 centimeters. Its chronology is unknown, but it is similar to other milestones in the region, most dating from the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D.

This monument is part of Monfurado routes where you can enjoy various places and landscapes of Alentejo.
