Vizace near Pula in Croatia

Thanks to a Latin teacher in Croatia we can now all enjoy the view of the Roman settlement of Nesactium near modern day Pula.
Conquered in 177 BC from the tribe of the Histri, Nesactium was designed as a quintessential Roman town with bath house, forum and temples.
Yet already prior to Roman conquest, Nesactium seems to have been a settlement of some importance, with archaeological finds dating back as far back as the 6th century BC.
