In the article of the well – known Romanian researcher and epigraphist Ioan Piso entitled “Les estampiles tegulaires de Sarmizegetusa”, published in Ephemeris Napocensis, VI, 1996, pp. 153-200, were omitted at least two articles published in the same journal: “Civil or military stamps?” in Ephemeris Napocensis, I, 1991, pp. 173-177, and “New Interpretations of Some Tegular Stamps from Dacia” in Ephemeris Napocensis, III, 1993, pp. 185-188. The tegular materials that were omitted propose the reinterpretation of some stamps that: prove the presence of a vexillation of the Vth Legion Macedonica at Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa, certify the existence of a new producer of tegular material at Ulpia, called Fanius, and decodes correctly the meaning of the tegular stamp PES, which is not civilian but a military one, and belongs to the PE(dites) S(ingulares) [Britannici], this military unit ensuring the guard of the governor of the province Dacia.
