Aerial view of the Roman fort Apsarus, located in western Georgia, 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) south of Batumi near the Turkish border. Established on the left bank of the mouth of the Chorokhi River in the 1st century under Roman emperor Nero (r. 54-68 CE), Apsarus was the largest Roman stronghold along the Colchian littoral (the Pontus Limes). Arrian inspected the fort in the early 130s and recorded the presence of five cohorts (approximately 1,200-1,500 men).
