Caesaraugusta, Hispania Tarraconensis (Zaragoza, Spain)
Caesaraugusta began as Salduie, a village settled by the Sedetani, an Iberian tribe. Augustus founded Caesaraugusta on the site to settle army veterans from the Cantabrian wars. The city did not decline significantly during the last centuries of the Roman empire and was captured peacefully by the Goths in the 5th century.
