Roman Museum Flavia Solva

in detail

Flavia Solva, situated in the area of the market town of Wagna, was the only Roman city within the modern province of Styria and its most important Roman site. The Roman settlement developed near an earlier Celtic centre which was probably situated on a hillsite nearby, the Frauenberg near Leibnitz. In AD 70 the emperor Vespasian granted a municipal charter to Flavia Solva, officially elevating it to the status of a city. The local Celtic population was very open to new influences from Rome and rapidly adopted Roman culture and civilisation.

This is amply documented by various archaeological finds, most notably inscriptions and reliefs which are found in many locations around the area of the ancient city. These artefacts show that Flavia Solva was one of the most cultivated cities in the province of Noricum.
