Azaila
(156 words)

[German version]

Cabezo de Alcalá, an oppidum of the Sedetani including the lower part of the town and a fortified acropolis (houses built on Italian lines, paved streets, sacellum in antis and the remains of large bronzes) is situated close to the modern location of A. The Iberian-Republican city is built on top of an earlier settlement (started c. 650 BC, destroyed in c. 200 BC); the new city seems to have been abandoned after it was conquered in about 80/70 BC, during the time of the Sertorian wars (siege ramp, catapult).
