Vetoniana is a Roman cohort camp near Pfünz in Bavaria, Germany. Probably constructed around 90 CE as a wooden and earth structure and later rebuilt in stone, Fort Vetoniana was garrisoned by a unit of 500 men, including some cavalry. Of historical importance are the remains of the double V-shaped ditches. It is a component of the Upper Germanic-Rhaetian Limes which was elevated in 2005 to the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
