The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Ravenna

Perhaps originating as an Etruscan center, Ravenna becomes especially important in the late Roman period. From AD 402 until 476 Ravenna served as the capital of the Western Roman Empire, after which (until AD 554) it was the Ostrogothic capital. From AD 554 to 771 Ravenna was the center of the Byzantine Exarchate of Ravenna and, finally, became the seat of the Lombard kingdom.
