Barrington Atlas: BAtlas 15 A3 Col. Baeterrae

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: settlement and bridge at Béziers. Prior to the Roman conquest, the local toponym seems to have been Besara and the site was located in the territory of the Volcae Tectosages. The Romans annexed the site along with the rest of Transalpine Gaul. A colony for veterans of Levio VII was established in A.D. 36.
