Roman camp and
civil settlement at the junction of the Someşul Mic river
and Căpuşul valley, W of the town of Cluj (Napoca).
The camp (210 x 138 m), originally of earth, was rebuilt in stone in the middle of the 2d c. A.D. The Ala I
Siliana was stationed here.
In the civil settlement, S of the camp, traces of walls
have been found, sculptures, various coins minted in the
period between Marcus Aurelius and Phillip the Arab,
and a military diploma of 164 A.D. The funeral monuments with ornaments of typical provincial style were
made on the spot. The large number of Dacian ceramics
attest to Roman-Dacian synthesis. The archaeological
material is displayed by the History Museum of Transylvania in Cluj.
