Roman Apulum was a complex conurbation located on the middle Mureş River, which included the fortress of Legion XIII Gemina, its surrounding canabae, part of which gained municipal status in the Severan period as the Municipium Septimium Apulensis, and a prosperous port town that became the Municipium Aurelium Apulensis under Marcus Aurelius and was later promoted as the Colonia Aurelia Apulensis under Commodus. Archaeological and epigraphic evidence underline the significant impact of the military presence on the social and economic development especially in the canabae and the Severan Municipium. Apulum was not only the largest conurbation in Roman Dacia but also an important military, cultural and political center. The seat of the XIII Gemina Legion and the province’s governor, Apulum was a flourishing urban center in the II-III. centuries A.D.
