Tergeste (the modern Trieste) was first a vicus dependent on Aquileia (ca. 100 BC) and later became a colony under Caesar, sometime before 52 B.C. In the Augustan reorganization of Italy, the city was part of the Decima Regio and then of Venetia et Histria. By Late Antiquity, it had become a bishopric.

The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Trieste ITL

Recently conducted geophysical work (see Bernardini et al. 2015) suggests a system of late third to early second century B.C. fortifications in the area of the later Tergeste that may represent the initial Roman efforts to exert control in the Istrian landscape. LiDAR investigation has revealed evidence at numerous sites, including the San Rocco site, that may align with a comment made by Strabo who refers to the fortress of Tergeste.
