"Ecis imm(unis)" clarification?
#1
I came across a phrase I'm having trouble understanding in a military inscription (CIL 8.18084).  In general, the inscription lists a soldier's name, their office (if any), and a toponym, though this isn't entirely consistent.  Is "Ecis" a place I'm just not familiar with?  Or might it refer to some set of duties that afforded this soldier "immunis" status?  Any help making sense of these words would be appreciated.
