(Abergavenny) Monmouthshire, Wales.
The Roman fort has not been precisely located,
but must lie beneath the modern town of Abergavenny, on
the N bank of the Usk. A bath is known near the castle,
and a cemetery to the NE. Excavations in the town center have produced a quantity of Roman pottery of the
period A.D. 75-150, with enough Claudian and Neronian
pottery to indicate occupation in the period A.D. 50-60.
The finds are in the Abergavenny Museum.
