Abusina was a Roman military camp of the Roman province of Rhaetia. It is located at Eining on the Danube around 30 kilometres (984 ft) south-west of Regensburg, along the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes. Originally a timbered earth fort erected by the Cohors IV Gallorum in 79-81 CE, Abusina was part of the first series of forts established along the Danube. It was replaced by a stone fort under Antoninus Pius (139-161 CE), and around 300 CE, a small, strongly fortified fortress was established.
