The Roman city of Astigi was founded by Augustus in the year 14 BC over a Turdetan settlement next to the Genil river. Being part of the Via Augusta and with a navigable river, Astigi was the capital of the Astigitanus conventus where it's remarkable the production and distribution of olive oil. With the typical reticular layout of Roman urban planning, this city, contemporary of other capitals such as Emerita Augusta, had in common with them its monumentalization and architectural canons, whose similarities can be seen in the temples dedicated to Augustus, and by the presence of entertainment buildings such as the amphitheater or circus.
