The work is based on the study of seven inscriptions from the

territory of Salona which cite the term cognatio in the context of a

religious association, and which is specific to the aforementioned

region. An analysis of these finds has facilitated the initiation of

debate on the functioning and features of cognatii, and their role

as part of the cult of the Magna Mater, whereby Salona confirmed

itself as a very important metroac centre.
