Abusina

Abusina was a Roman military camp of the Roman province of Raetia. It is located at Eining on the Danube ca. 30 km south-west of Regensburg, along the Limes Germanicus. Originally a timbered earth fort erected by the Cohors IV Gallorum in AD 79-81, Abusina was part of the first series of forts established along the Danube. It was replaced by a stone fort under Antoninus Pius (139-161), and around AD 300, a small, strongly fortified fortress was established. The Roman fort of Abusiana was destroyed in a fire c. AD 430. Excavations have revealed the fort, the headquarter building (principia), Commanding Officer’s house with two extensions, and a bath building with annexes, all on the north side. Two sanctuaries were discovered north of the vicus.
