The goal of this paper1 was to shed light on the existence of stelae from Viminacium in the province of Upper Moesia which can be classified as topped by the two reclining lions. This type of stelae, surmounted by two lions and one element between them, was well-known in Noricum and Pannonia. There was no archaeological evidence and previous studies did not point out that this type of stelae was present in Viminacium and Upper Moesia. The study has shown that stelae of M. Valerius Speratus, T. Baebius Eutyches, and most probably of C. Corneilus Rufus, although not preserved in integral form today, were surmounted by the pediment, most likely with two reclining lions.
