Zela (modern Zile, Turkey) was an important ancient city of north-central Asia Minor; Strabo claimed Semiramis had founded the site. Iulius Caesar prevailed in the Battle of Zela against Pharnaces II of The Kingdom of Pontus, coining the phrase "veni, vidi, vici".

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
