or Beleia (Iruña) Alava, Spain.
, the Antonine Itinerary
, and the Ravenna Cosmographer note this oppidum, 11 km from
modern Vitoria. It forms a triangular area enclosed by
walls, and had a native Iberian population, for which a
Roman one was substituted on the occasion of the Cantabrian wars. The site flourished in the 2d c., from which the chief remains date; it was abandoned towards the 4th c., although its walls survived into the 5th. Finds include
specimens of terra sigillata, column shafts and bases, and
glass. The most outstanding remains are a torso armed
with breastplate, now in the museum of Vitoria, and an
unidentified female statue.
