Ancient City of Diana Veteranorum


Batna, Algeria (DZ)
Diana Veteranorum is an ancient Roman-Berber city in modern-day Algeria. The settlement was founded when Roman veterans of Legio III Augusta under the command of Emperor Trajan settled in Northern Africa.

The site has been excavated throughout the years and have undercovered many remains. Some of these remains include a large paved forum, an aqueduct, a temple thought to have been dedicated to the goddess Diana, two arches. An inscription stating the arches were erected by Emperor Macrinus in 217 has also been located.
