The Barrington Atlas Directory notes: Exeter

Isca Dumnoniorum (modern Exeter) likely dates ca. A.D. 75, when Legio II Augusta moved to Caerleon. The site was likely a civitas capital by ca. A.D. 80; the forum and basilica date to this time. The site was abandoned and had become a cemetery by the fifth century.
