Narbo Martius, the present Narbonne, was a city in the south of France, founded in 118 BC. It was the first Roman colony outside Italy. The harbour was used for the navy by Julius Caesar as well as by Pompeius. Around 46 BC Julius Caesar built a new harbour, while the emperor Augustus re-organized the city. Narbo Martius became the capital of Gallia Narbonensis and from that time on was called Colonia Iulia Paterna Narbo Martius.
Narbo was an important link between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The city was located strategically at a point where two Roman roads were constructed, the Via Domitia, which connected Italy with Spain, and the Via Aquitania, from Narbo Martius towards the Atlantic Ocean. The city had a trading office in Ostia on the Piazzale delle Corporazioni (statio 32). At Port Vendres, 100 km to the south of Narbonne, an important shipwreck has been investigated.
