-------------------------------------------------------------
This article examines the now well-known inscription of Patara, the so-called Stadiasmos of Patara. Authors already argued that the long list of measures between cities of Lycia was useless as an itinerary and travel guide. But if it was meant as an instrument of imperial propaganda, the list itself and the introduction of the Stadiasmos (inscription B) allow to support a more pragmatic interpretation : the inscription testifies also to the appropriation of the ancient lycian road network by the new roman rule and its acceptance by Lycians.
