A set ${f_1,f_2,ldots,f_d}$ of Roman dominating functions on $D$ with the property that $sum_{i=1}^d f_i(v)le 2$ for each $vin V(D)$, is called a Roman dominating family (of functions) on $D$. The maximum number of functions in a Roman dominating family on $D$ is the Roman domatic number of $D$, denoted by $d_{R}(D)$. In this note, we study the Roman domatic number in digraphs, and we present some sharp bounds for $d_{R}(D)$. In addition, we determine the Roman domatic number of some digraphs. Some of our results are extensions of well-known properties of the Roman domatic number of undirected graphs.http://comb-opt.azaruniv.ac.ir/article_13884_bf374c8fd79d776bfc11bd95660ff3b1.pdf
