QUINTIA´NA CASTRA a fort in the east of Vindelicia, not far from the banks of the Danube, between Batava Castra and Augustana Castra. Its garrison consisted of a troop of Rhaetian horsemen. (It. Ant. p. 249; Notit. Imp., where it is called Quartana Castra ; comp. Eugipp. Vit. S. Severini, 15, 27.) Muchar (Noricum, p. 285) identifies its site with that of the modern village of Künzen.
