Summary/Abstract: We continue the regular publishing of the sealings found in Dobruja, by presenting several civic andprovincial sealings. Based on the sealings’ legends, we were able to identify the names of the following cities fromAsia Minor: Dios Hieron, Ephesos, Hypaipa, Klazomenai and Tralleis. One sealing bear the name of Pamphyliaprovince. We believe that the commercial sealings discovered in the Lower Danube area attest to the trading ofgoods imported from Asia Minor, in order to maintain the logistics of the Roman army stationed along the Danubeduring the Gothic war under the emperor Valens (366-369 CE).
