Ten votive monuments dedicated to Greek gods have been identified in the territory of central Serbia so far. The monuments have been identified in the areas of Singidunum (3), Viminacium (2), Naissus (2), Dardania (2), and Romuliana (1). Hecate and Apollo each other were dedicated to two of the monuments and Apollo was also present in cult communities with Diana and Silvanus in Viminacium and in the imperial cult of Dardania. Cult symbioses included also HIlara with Jupiter, Juno, and Liber, and Artemis as DeaOrcia was in cult symbiosis with the imperial cult. Other monuments are in standalone cults and dedicated to Heros. Hero, Ata and Omphale. All mentioned municipal centers are tourist centers and also areas of scientific and research work. The main goal of this paper is to show that Romanised Greek settlers lived there.
