A map showing the auxiliary forts located on the eastern end of the Black Sea during the reign of Roman emperor Hadrian (r. 117-138 CE). The Caucasus region was part of the eastern frontiers of the Roman Empire. About 131 CE, Arrian (as governor of Cappadocia) described his inspection of Roman military positions along the eastern shore of the Black Sea in a report to the emperor called Periplus of the Euxine Sea (Circumnavigation of the Black Sea).
