COMPLUTUM (Alcalá de Henares) Madrid, Spain.

An ancient site, 31 km NE of Madrid, on San Juan del Viso hill, near the town. It is mentioned by the ancient geographers, in itineraries, and in inscriptions (CIL II, 3024ff). Some architectural remains are still visible, and finds include epigraphic and numismatic material, but the site has not been excavated except for recent investigation of a villa on the lower part of the hill.
