The theme of Boukellarion has been evidenced since 767/768. It was established in the northwestern territories of the theme of Opsikion, while its barracks were at Ankyra (most possible) and the “inspection camp” at Colonea. The theme of Boukellarion reached its full military power in 766-828 and was dissolved in the late 11th century.
