A few words about the poster of the edition with no. 11.

Decebalus was the last great king of the Dacians.

Ancient discoveries present him as a feared enemy of Rome, but also as a valiant warrior.

Decebalus is perhaps one of the most famous characters of Ancient History from the Carpatho-Danubian-Pontic space. The last king of the Dacians arouses fascination even today, especially after he was rediscovered in the 19th century by Romanian intellectuals and historians. Decebal is a character romanticized in some places, finding his place both in the pages of history books, of specialized studies, but also in literature or national propaganda. As famous as Decebalus is for his fights, he is little known as a person. If Decebalus' wars with the Romans are very well known, the personality and biography of the great Dacian king still remain a mystery. Moreover, there is only one clear, explicit reference regarding the personality and virtues of the Dacian king, namely in the "Roman History" of Cassius Dio, one of the most important sources, along with the Column, regarding the Daco-Roman wars. The second Dacian war (105-106) ended with the defeat of Decebalus and his suicide, his kingdom being conquered and transformed into the Roman province of Dacia. After the defeat of the Dacians, Trajan organized the biggest and most expensive Festival in Rome, which lasted ~123 days, the amount of gold and silver looted from Dacia by the Romans being appreciated by the ancient chroniclers as fabulous. With this opportunity, we wanted to pay tribute to the great last Dacian king.



In books you often find colorful drawings and stories that usually take place in palaces. This year our story takes place in an elegant and majestic location, Bragadiru Palace in Bucharest. The 2023 International Tattoo Convention will be held between the 20/22 october 2023.
