Abstract: Na podlagi nedavne raziskave ob pobočju pod območjem izkopov v Jelarjih, ki je razkrila tudi nove pomembne strukture, delno zakrite z gozdom, je bilo na eni strani mogoče ugotoviti dejansko razsežnost naselja, ki je bilo veliko večje od tistega, kar so prvotno mislili, po drugi strani pa dojeti njegovo zgodovinsko vrednost. Nesporna je ključna lega tega kraja v antičnem cestnem omrežju, zlasti v zvezi s potjo, ki je vodila v Histrio, pa tudi njegova vloga obmejne predstraže; to je bilo še posebej pomembno v letih neposredno po rimski osvojitvi Histrie do Avgustove reforme meja.
A recent survey was carried out at Elleri along the slope situated beneath the excavation site, bringing to light new, important structures that were “half-obliterated” by the undergrowth. This survey has made it possible, on the one hand to re-consider the actual dimensions of the residential area – which proved to be much larger than was originally hypothesized − and, on the other hand, to re-assess its true historical value. The key position of the site within the ancient road network was revealed to be of undisputed importance, especially in regards to the road that led into Histria, together with its role as an outpost across the border; this played a particularly vital role in the years that immediately followed the conquest of Histria by the Romans until the boundary reform commissioned by Augustus was implemented.
Eine aktuelle Begehung von Elleri entlang des Hanges unter dem Ausgrabungsgebiet brachte neue bedeutende Strukturen zutage, die “halb erstickt” von der Vegetation ruhten. Das gestattet einerseits den wahren Umfang der Siedlung neu zu betrachten (weit größer als bisher angenommen), und andererseits ihre echte historische Bedeutung neu zu definieren. Unbestritten ist die Schlüsselposition des Ortes im Zusammenhang mit dem antiken Straßennetz, insbesondere der Einfallsstraßen nach Histria, aber auch seine Rolle als Vorposten jenseits der Grenze; dies war in der Zeit unmittelbar nach der Eroberung von Histria durch die Römer bis zur Grenzreform des Augustus von besonderer Bedeutung.
