Peut.), or COLONIA APULENSIS (Ulpian. de Censibus, Dig. 1. tit. 15.1), an important Roman colony, in Dacia, on the river Marissa (Marosch), on the site of the modern Carlsburg or Weissenburg, in Transylvania, where are the remains of an aqueduct and other ruins. If the reading of one inscription given by Gruter,--Alba Julia,--be correct, the place has preserved its ancient name,Alba= Weissenburg.
