ZENICA (“Bistue Nova”) Bosnia-Herzegovina, Yugoslavia.

An indigenous site on the right bank of the Bosnia river 78 km NW of Sarajevo. There are remains of a large Roman building with two inscriptions in Latin which have preserved the name of the municipium and another inscription which mentions the priest who performed the cult “urbis Romae.” Family names on other inscriptions indicate that the inhabitants received Roman citizenship under the Flavian emperors. There are ruins of a small Roman bath and a nymphaeum near the modern town. The seat of a bishop from 530 to 534, the town has the remains of an Early Christian church.
