The military amphitheatre of Burnum Legionary Camp in Dalmatia (modern-day Croatia). It was completed in 76-77 CE under Vespasian.
The legionary camp was erected at the turn of the new era at a strategically important position from which the Romans could control the crossing over the Krka River, called Titius in Roman times. It was once the camp of the 11th Legion of the Roman army, Claudia Pia Fidelis and was succeeded by the 4th legion, Flavia Felix. Auxiliary units (cohorts) were also stationed here.
Epigraphic monuments indicate that during Hadrian’s era, in 118 CE, Burnum became a municipium (municipium Burnistarum) and the population grew around the camp.
