Visiting and browsing

Nothing of the legionary fortress can now be seen, probably because it has been completely removed by the River Drava changing course. The tombstone of the centurion M. Petronius Classicus of Legio VIII Augusta, together with the scabbard plate from a sword, can be seen in the Pokrajinski muzej Ptuj.
