The Pannonian Limes is a part that is mostly found in Hungary from the Roman front line known as the Danubian Limes, a line of castles and fortifications along the Danube River. The fortification line included guard towers, legionnaires’ camps (castra) and forts (castella).

The plaques are located in the March 15 square in Budapest where one of the camps stood, describing the relative location of the camps along the Danube which is also drawn on the sidewalk.

The current plaque shows Ulcisia, the Roman name of the Roman military camp in Szentendre, Hungary. The camp established during the reign of Emperor Domitian (end of the first century AD), was initially called Ulcisia Castra (Wolf Camp) and later renamed Castra Constantia. The camp existed until the beginning of the fifth century AD.

Notice the two lines representing the Danube River on the right side of the plaque.
